Imani-Lara Lansiquot had two major lockdown projects.

The first was the catchily titled “Effects of technical jargon and expert sources on social psychology explanations” – a timely dissertation that essentially tested government minister Michael Gove’s famous 2016 claim that Britain “has had enough of experts”.

“It is about the scientific words or expert sources cited in journalism and how that affects how people value the information,” the world relay silver medallist and psychology undergraduate told BBC Sport.

Instead of 10,000 words, Lansiquot’s second project produced just a minute and a half of video.

With seven of her socially-distanced relay team-mates, the 22-year-old filmed a version of the viral #dontrushchallenge. The septet take turns flipping from low-key loungewear to primped race kit get-ups, via a flurry of cunning video transitions.
