Scottish runner Laura Muir won her first gold medal in the 1500m at the European Indoor Athletics Championship, where she broke the British record. When trying to take a victory lap, an official tried to block her, apparently due to the fact that they were running late in the schedule. See what happens next.

She told The Mirror, “I didn’t really say anything. I just thought, at the end of the day, she won’t be able to catch me!”
