Double gold for Shakes-Drayton
Perri Shakes-Drayton made it two gold medals in the space of seven hours on the final day of the European Indoor Championships by anchoring Great Britain to victory in the women's 4x400 metres relay in Gothenburg.
The Londoner, a 400m hurdles specialist, followed up her dominant performance in the individual event with another impressive run as the British quartet stormed to victory at the Scandinavium Arena.
The team, which was led off by Eilidh Child, the 400m silver medallist here, and also included Olympic silver medal winner Christine Ohuruogu and Shana Cox, led from the very first leg to win in a new championship record.
They clocked three minutes, 27.56 seconds to finish 0.22secs ahead of the Russians, with Czech Republic getting bronze.
Shakes-Drayton said: "I can feel it in my legs right now but I went out there and did it for the girls. Nobody wants to let anyone down. The hard work I have been doing has paid off and I can look forward to the outdoors now."
The men's quartet added another gold barely 15 minutes later after successfully appealing a disqualification.
The team of Michael Bingham, Richard Buck, Nigel Levine - the individual silver medallist ran a superb third leg to put the team in the lead - and Richard Strachan clocked 3mins 06.96secs to finish over half a second clear of closest rivals Russia.
They were disqualified while still on their lap of honour, though, after second-leg runner Buck appeared to step off the track as he jostled for position with Poland's Rafal Omelko on the first bend but the York athlete appeared to be barged by the Pole, leaving him little option but to leave his lane, and the team were reinstated on appeal.
Earlier, Shakes-Drayton stormed to gold in the 400 metres ahead of Child as she led from the front and powered to victory in 50.85 seconds, a second personal best in two days and the fastest time in the world this year.
The 24-year-old finished more than half a second ahead of fellow hurdles specialist Child, who still lowered her own Scottish record to 51.45secs.
