CWG 2022: Laura Muir on how to recover stronger after winning the 1500-meter gold - I've been bother
The athlete from Scotland, Laura Muir, earned two medals at the current Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
At the Commonwealth Games 2022 on August 7, Scotland's Laura Muir won the women's 1500-meter gold medal after working every sinew in her body. The 29-year-old flattered to deceive in the same race at the CWG 2014 in Glasgow, and as a result, she withdrew from the women's 800m heats.
She then chose to concentrate on her veterinary medicine exams rather than the 2018 CWG in Gold Coast. Muir acknowledged that it was difficult for her to move past the disappointment of the 2014 CWG, but she also expressed gratitude for the opportunity to make amends in Birmingham.
"I simply believed that my strength was in my kick, so I tried to trust it and prayed that no one would catch me. Muir was quoted as stating, "I ran as hard as I could to the line.
"I think I would have told the Laura Muir of 2014—after placing 11th at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games—' your time will come,'" she remarked.
"It may seem awful at the time, but you grow from it and move on stronger. This was very important to me because I had been missing the Gold Coast (in 2018) for eight years, added Muir.
The Inverness-born Muir not only won the gold in the women's 1500-meter race but also the bronze in the women's 800-meter race.
"It is wonderful to be here and win two medals in such a fiercely contested field. Those girls move quickly. It's significant," Muir continued.
At the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, Muir also took home the silver medal in the women's 1500-meter race.
