Her next great achievement came in 2013, representing Great Britain in the 800m race and claiming a new personal best. Later in 2014, she attended the 2014 Diamond League event, a significant victory for Laura after she beat the 27 year old Scottish 1500m record. Two years later, Laura returned to the 2016 Diamond League, this time breaking Kelly Holmes’ British 1500m record.
At the Paris Diamond League, Laura made another significant achievement, setting the new national 1500m record with a time of 3:55:22. This time also gave her the title of the fastest woman in the world for 1500m. Next Laura attended the Birmingham Indoor Grand Prix, breaking the 1000m British record. She also set a new record in the 5000m race, impressive after only running that distance once previously.
