VIDEO: Eilish McColgan sets her sights on winning a medal on home turf at Glasgow 2019 European Athletics Indoor Championships

EILISH MCCOLGAN is hoping her family can share her experience of winning a medal when the European Athletics Indoor Championships come to Glasgow next year.

A double Olympian, the 27-year-old won silver for the 5000m at the outdoor championships in Berlin during the summer.

And with 100 days to go until the indoors come to home turf, she’s relishing the chance for her relatives to finally get a chance to be at the finishing line.

“It is special, we don’t get to do it very often,” she says. “My family never get a chance to come and watch me race.

“At the European outdoors it was an amazing achievement winning a medal but none of my family were there to see it and experience it with me, so for [the indoors] to be in Glasgow it really gives my brother and sister no excuse!”

Eilish, fresh from winning the Great South Run, admits it’s been a ‘whirlwind year’ for her, with highs as well as lows.

She says: “The start of the year was really disappointing for me. At the Commonwealth Games I had a virus heading into that, so to end the year on such a high at the Europeans with my first outdoor medal was brilliant.

“It’s set me in a lot of good confidence ahead of this championship. I want to come here and try and win a medal on home turf.”

The European Athletics Indoor Championships will see some of the world’s leading athletes descend on Glasgow’s Emirates Arena between 1-3 March.

It’s the first time the event has been hosted in the city since 1990, and follows the success of the outdoor championships during the summer.

Setting their sights on glory will be 650 athletes from more than 45 nations.

Tickets are now on-sale on the event’s website:
