Muir aiming to go the distance as selectors' eyes settle on youngster

Laura Muir, the Scottish middle-distance runner, will be aiming to impress selectors as she heads for the British Athletics European Trials and UK Championships in Sheffield this weekend.

The 19-year-old is certainly in good shape. She clocked a personal best of four minutes 12.39 seconds to win the 1500m at the Vienna Indoor Classic last week; some 12 seconds faster than she posted over the same distance at the International Match in Glasgow three days earlier. The trials will decide who makes the British squad for the European Indoor Championships in Gothenburg in March.
