Here's some deep thoughts from Stuart Weir on Day 1, and the high jump wins by Mariya Lasitskene and Danil Lysenko. In the 3000 meters, Genzebe Dibaba won the gold, with Sifan Hassan winning silver and GBR's Laura Muir running her race, and a smart last 400 meters to win the bronze, Muir's first medal at these Games.

Day 1 Reflection
The World Indoors got off to a good start in an action packed 2 hour session. Three GB medal chances produced one medal - a bronze for Laura Muir who ran a courageous race to finish behind Genzebe Dibaba and Sifan Hassan but ahead of Hellen Obiri in the women's 3000m. A first global medal for Muir who was 7th in Rio and 4th and 6th in London 2017.
 
Muir said afterwards: "I can't describe the feeling, it's brilliant. To get a European medal was brilliant but to get one on the world stage in a world class 3000m, to come through that field, I'm very happy. I was hurting on that last lap but I had to dig deep and I got a medal. I just wanted to stay out of trouble at the start; Klosterhalfen took over the pace so everything went to plan. I knew I could be strong at the end so I'm very pleased. The crowd were great and good on them for coming out to support."
