Levine wins 400m silver medal in Gothenburg but Meadows misses out
after suffering an achilles injury in September 2011, but had targeted a medal in the event she won in Paris two years ago. The Wigan athlete was only awarded her title two weeks ago after Russia's Yevgeniya Zinurova received a backdated doping ban.
Meadows said: 'I feel a bit silly to say I feel disappointed that I came fourth – it’s an amazing achievement – but I’ve tried to keep my lack of preparation at the back of my head. If I stood on the track thinking that, I probably wouldn’t have even got to the final.
'A medal would have been a bonus and I was good enough to get a medal. I’ve let myself down a little bit tactically but I’m fit and healthy and in one piece and it’s a way forward for the summer.'
