Event details

Sainsbury’s Indoor Grand Prix | NIA – Barclaycard Arena Birmingham | Saturday 21 Feb 2015

This year’s Sainsbury’s Indoor Grand Prix will return to Birmingham’s newly renovated Barclaycard Arena, formerly known as the NIA where the biggest British and global athletics superstars including Mo Farah will descend on the West Midlands in an afternoon jam-packed full of world-class athletics.

Those who were lucky enough to get their hands on tickets to last year’s sell-out event saw some show stopping performances from Britain’s finest. GB & NI’s James Dasaolu saw off the likes of Jimmy Vicaut, Mike Rodgers, Dwain Chambers and Kim Collins to win the 60m, clocking a time 6.50, while there were also home wins for European Indoor champion pole vaulter Holly Bleasdale, Laura Muir in the 1500m and Nigel Levine in the 400m.

The international stars also lit up the track with a 2 mile world record from Ethiopian Genzebe Dibaba and a superb victory for Ivory Coast’s Murielle Ahoure against eight-time global sprint champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
