Laura WEIGHTMAN (GBR)

On the prospect of competing with fellow Briton Laura MUIR:

"I'm really excited about running alongside Laura in the final. We can motivate each other and make Great Britain proud. I won't tell you what my plan is for the final, but I'm going to get out there and be ready for whatever is going to be thrown at me."

Laura MUIR (GBR)

On her performance to reach the final:

"I did a good run in this heat, which is great, because sometimes it can be very nerve-wracking to get through to the final. You never know what may happen. Berlin has only just started for me."

On her plans for the future:

"I am really excited about the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow next year. It's my home track, it's where I normally train, and hopefully I will be able to defend my title there too."
