It was a great weekend for British Athletes at the World Indoor Championships, with the team taking a total of 6 medals to finish the indoor season on a high.

Nigel Levine made the semi-finals in the men’s individual 400m with two great runs. He missed out on the final by one place despite producing a gutsy run in a time of 46.84secs, from Lane 1, in the fastest of the semi-finals.

Margaret Adeoye made the semi-finals in the individual women’s 400m. She was pleased with her performance in only her first World Indoor Championships, taking a season’s best of 52.69sec in the heats. Margaret will take away great experience and will hope to use this in the upcoming outdoor season.

After two tough runs in the individual 400m, Margaret came back to represent the British team in the women’s 4x400m. She ran a superb leg to produce the fastest time of the British Quartet in a time of 51.4secs. The British team held off Russia to take a Bronze medal.

The British men produced a stellar performance to win Team GB’s last medal of the weekend. Luke Lennon-Ford had a great run and produced the fastest split of 45.6secs. Luke maintained position to hand over the baton to training partner Nigel. He showed strength and nerve to hold off a sustained effort from the Jamaican Team, to bring home a silver medal to add to GB’s medal tally.

This weekend marked the end of the indoor season and many of team GB’s athletes will be looking ahead to the outdoor season with the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow just around the corner.
