    “Birmingham: 1000 – 3rd Sofia Ennaoui 2:35.69 Poland’s record! (1st Laura Muir 2:34.53, couldn’t hold the pace for the world record),”

    Athletics News reported on Twitter.

    The previous indoor Polish record over this unusual distance belonged to Lidia Chojecka, who clocked 2:36.97 in Lievin on 23 February 2003.
