SEB Coe has thanked Glasgow for a “fabulous” World Indoor Athletics Championships after the city hosted the event for the first time at the Emirates Arena.

The World Athletics president said Glasgow delivered “a performance for the ages” and hinted it would not be the last time it hosts the championships.

Two world records were set at the event while Scottish stars Josh Kerr and Jemma Reekie picked up a gold and silver medal in the 3000m and 800m respectively.

Team GB’s Molly Caudery also secured a gold in the pole vault, while the women’s 4x400m relay team clinched a bronze after setting a national record on their way to the final.

Coe said on Twitter/X: “Thank you for a fabulous three days Glasgow. You promised us a great championships and boy did you deliver. There were some truly incredible performances, including two world records.

"This may have been the first global athletics championships to be held in Scotland, but I am sure it won’t be the last.”

In a separate post alongside an emotional montage of all the action, he said: “Glasgow, you have us a performance for the ages. Thank you.”

Coe said the “knowledgeable and passionate” crowd had been treated to “sumptuous” athletics throughout the weekend, adding that Kerr had become “physically intimidating” on the track.

His victory in Glasgow came after he saw off Olympic 1500m champion Jakob Ingebrigtsen at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest last year to claim gold.

Reekie secured her first major medal in the 800m but the 25-year-old looked visibly disappointed as she crossed the finish line as she continues to strive for more in Paris.

Scot Laura Muir – who normally specialises in the 1500m - finished fifth in the 3000m.

Team GB athletes will target the European Championships in Rome in June then aim to secure their Olympic place at the UK Championships on July 8 and 9.
