This year's SPAR British Indoor Championships had more at stake that usual - places in the Birmingham World Indoor Championships to be held in two weeks time. There was added spice with a sprinkling of top international athletes in the mix including a returning Rutherford, a dominant Muir and sprinters Ujah, Philip and Pozzi. Winners who had achieved the qualification marks would be guaranteed world places, with runners up hoping to persuade selectors to give them the second slot.

All the sprint action was completed on Saturday with CJ Ujah winning the men's flat title from Robertson. Kilty withdrew from the final and Edoburun false started in the heats. In the women's event, Asha Philip took the title from Daryll Neita and Bianca Williams. In the hurdles, Andrew Pozzi won the final despite being left in the blocks, with David King in second place. The women's sprint hurdles saw a surprise result with megan Marrs knocking half a second off her PB this season finishing just outside world championship qualification time.

Sir Mo FarahMo Farah once again topped the members poll for BASC Athlete of the Year. Sir Mo was a clear winner following his world championships gold and silver medals, Diamond League title and third conscutive Great North Run win. Over 450 members voted, with half backing Farah for the award. World relay silver medalist Dina Asher-Smith was runner-up, and Diamond League champion and world relay gold medalist CJ Ujah in third place.

Other athletes on the shortlist were: Aled Davies, Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, Sammi Kinghorn and Nick Miller. Members were also able to vote for other athletes, and a further ten received votes behind the shortlisted athletes. These included Laura Muir, Callum Hawkins and Eilish McColgan, all of whom had good seasons.
