Vet student Laura Muir is a IAAF Diamond League Champion after a nail-biting 1,500m race in Zurich on 1 September.
Miss Muir (23) became the third British woman to win a Diamond League title thanks to her second-place finish in the event, which saw her complete the course in 3:57.85.
Despite being pipped at the post by American athlete Shannon Rowbury, who won in a season’s best time with 3:57.78, Muir had enough points overall to scoop a Diamond League title.
“I never expected anything like this,” said Miss Muir, who was seventh in the Olympic final in Rio.
“I am the Diamond Race winner. This is big, big for me.”
In what has been a wonderful year for the athlete, the Glasgow University student, who just completed her fourth year of studies, twice broke the British record for the 1,500m and also won Diamond League races in Oslo, London and Paris.
The elated athlete later took to Twitter, writing: “I did it!!! Diamond League Champ 2016.”
