Scot Laura Muir smashed Kirsty Wade's 31-year-old British record to win the women's indoor mile in Birmingham.
The 25-year-old finished in four minutes 18.75 seconds, breaking Wade's mark of 4:23.86.
Muir told BBC Sport: "I knew I was in great shape. It was about winning the race, but also about running fast.
