Muir, who had planned to compete in both the
1,500 meters and 5,000m, is set to concentrate on the shorter
distance after withdrawing from next weekend's British trials in
British Athletics performance director Neil Black said that
24-year-old Scot had "a one percent" chance of doubling up in
"Her plan was to run at trials next weekend and with that not
happening, that has changed things," Black told the Times
"Laura had to have a period of time where she didn't run, that's
over and she has now progressed her training up to almost normal
level, so she has had to adapt."
Muir is one of Britain's leading medal prospects in London and
was aiming to run in two events as she had at the European
indoor championship in Belgrade earlier this year, where she won
gold in the 1,500m and 3,000m.
She is not expected to make her next competitive appearance
until the Anniversary Games in London on July 9.
