All three of Britain's women's 1,500m runners advanced to the semi-finals today.
World Championship silver medallist Hannah England, from Oxford, always looked well placed in her heat.
England, whose build-up has been hampered by a spiked Achilles tendon, came home fifth in 4:05.73.
Months after being diagnosed with potentially fatal blood clots on her lungs and told to give up on the Olympics, Lisa Dobriskey , from Ashford, showed she was getting back to her best by winning a slow heat in 4:13.32.
Laura Weightman, who is trained by former world record holder Steve Cram, finished sixth in the third heat in 4:07.29
