Hertford sprinter Antonio Infantino is targeting a place at the European Indoor Championships in Belgrade after opening up his season with a tremendous series of 200m races.
The former Haileybury and Kings College, London, student competed at the Northern Athletics Championships in Sheffield and enjoyed straight wins through the rounds, clocking 21.62 seconds and 21.29.
He then stormed to victory in the final, running a swift 21.04 – very close to his indoor personal best of 20.96 and the fastest time run in Europe this year. "I see Euro indoors as an opportunity to be back in front of the Italian fans – hoping that stepping out of my comfort zone and attempting a new event to get back in the Italian vest will help win some more support as an overseas athlete,” he said.
Laura Muir has revealed she is hoping to double up and run both the 1500m and 3000m at the European Indoor Championships in March.
Muir’s time of 14:49.12 at the GAA Miler Meet at the Emirates Arena eclipsed the previous mark of 15:03.71, set in 1992. It was only the second time she had raced the distance and the British 1500m record-holder, under the guidance of coach Andy Young, is now looking to mix things up a little in Belgrade at the championships which take place from March 3-5.
“We want to do both the 1500m and 3000m at European indoors,” said Muir, whose time of 8:59.39 through 3000m in Glasgow met the European qualifying standard which British Athletics have set for the distance.
According to the European Athletics Regulation and the Appendix 1, the number of teams to participate in relays at the European Athletics Indoor Championships is limited to 6 teams in each 4x400m event. The places for relay teams shall be allocated in accordance with the order of ranking of European Athletics Member Federation teams in the 4 x 400m outdoor list of 2016.
