Ethiopia's Gudaf Tsegay missed the women's world indoor 3,000 metres record by 0.09sec in Birmingham as the concluding World Athletics Indoor Tour Gold meeting of the season produced national records for Dina Asher-Smith, Keely Hodgkinson and Neil Gourley for Britain.

Asher-Smith, the 2019 world 200m champion, lowered her own women's 60m mark to 7.03sec in the heats at the Utilita Arena before winning the final in 7.05sec.

Hodgkinson, world and Olympic silver medallist and European champion at 800m, also broke her own record as she reduced her best by 0.02sec in clocking 1min 57.18sec, finishing more than two seconds clear.

And Gourley lowered the British indoor 1500m record to 3min 32.48sec, bettering the mark of 3:32.86 set last year by Tokyo 2020 bronze medallist Josh Kerr.

The face of Ethiopia’s world mile record holder and world 5,000m champion Tsegay said it all as she won the women’s 3,000m in 8min 16.69sec - an excruciating 0.09sec shy of the world record set by her compatriot Genzebe Dibaba nine years ago in Stockholm.

It was the second near miss this season for Tsegay, who ran the second fastest women's indoor mile at the Torun Gold meeting on February 8, clocking 4:16.16 but missing the mark of 4:13.31 set by Dibaba in 2016.

"It was so close," she said.

"My body is more tired from the travelling, but I am sure that I will get the world record next time."

Asher-Smith, who had taken her British record to 7.04 at Karlsruhe in January, was hoping for a sub-7sec timing after her heat performance.

But she was broadly pleased with her final indoor flourish of the season - she has not entered the European Athletics Indoor Championships that start in Istanbul on Thursday (March 2).

"I'm really happy to have run a British record," Asher-Smith said.

"I was aiming for sub-7 today, but it's good that I'm frustrated, running so fast.

"It bodes well."

She was followed home in 7.13 by compatriot Daryll Neita, who will be a medal contender in Turkey.

Hodgkinson had come into the race with an eye on the 1:55.82 world record that was set by Jolanda Ceplak on the day the British runner was born almost 21 years ago.

"It was pretty smooth running, but the line got away from me towards the end," she said.

"I'm a bit gutted because I feel like I'm capable of faster than that, but nevertheless, I'm happy to come away with another British record."

In the men’s 1500m, Kerr looked for a while as if he would be the one to improve his record, but Gourley took control in the back straight on the final lap to earn a time that saw him take the Scot's place at eighth in the all-time indoor listings.

Spain's European indoor 3.000m bronze medallist Adel Mechaal was second in a Spanish record of 3:33.28.

In the men's 60m hurdles double world champion Grant Holloway - of course - won in a meeting record of 7.35sec, the fastest recorded this year, extending an unbeaten run indoors that goes back to 2014, when he was 16.

The women’s 1000m also featured a world record attempt, with Britain’s Olympic 1500m silver medallist Laura Muir attacking Maria Mutola’s 2:30.94 set in 1999.

Despite being on schedule in the first half of the race, Muir found the pacing lights starting to move away from her before she won in 2:34.53.

Marquis Dendy of the United States, wearing a distinctly un-aerodymanic white bucket hat, won the men’s long jump with a final effort of 8.28m.

Alysha Newman, Canada’s 2018 Commonwealth women’s pole vault champion, won with 4.78m.
