Three of Liverpool Harriers’ finest athletes competed at the Muller Indoor Grand Prix in Glasgow this afternoon.

With indoor season well under way, the event in Scotland provided another opportunity for the athletes to prepare for the year ahead.

The city’s sporting sweetheart Katarina Johnson-Thompson competed in the long jump competition, in preparation for the event in the heptathlon.

She took 4th with a jump of 6.47m, marking the same distance as fellow Brit Jazmin Sawyers.

The event officially began her seasonal campaign to once again cementing herself as the best heptathlete in the world, like she did last year when she won the World Championships in Doha.

Fellow Harrier Jamie Webb (pictured) competed in the 1500m event, but failed to finish, in his second competition of the year.

Glasgow holds a special place for Webb, considering he picked up his silver European Championships medal last year at the Emirates Arena.

Webb is amongst those chosen for Olympic podium potential funding ahead of the Olympic Games later in the year.

James Williams took 5th place in the 400m, with a personal best time of 47:26.

The event formed part of the World Athletics World Indoor Tour, with the meeting featuring the biggest athletics stars from across the globe aiming to start the year successfully, in what is an important step in building up to Tokyo 2020.

One year on from hosting the most successful European Indoor Championships ever staged, the arena brought world class sport to the Glasgow athletics faithful with a competitive field of World and Olympic medallists.

The highlight of the event was Scottish superstar Laura Muir breezing to victory in the 1000m (2:33:47), much to the delight of the Glaswegian crowd.

Regardless of the results, the competition posed as an early step for the Liverpool Harriers athletes for their year ahead.
