The Brits beat the USA by just three points with Germany, a Commonwealth select squad and Sweden following on.

Wigan Harrier Meadows, competing in her World Championship silver medal distance of 800m, took the lead after the first 200m to win in 2:02.53.

Clitheroe, who was recently seen winning the Ribble Valley 10K road race in Clitheroe, had a harder time in the 3000m.

The Preston Harrier was overtaken by the German Sabrina Mockenhaupt before re-passing in the last 50m to win in 9:05.87.
