Erik Kynard Jr., who won the silver medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and captured back-to-back high jump national titles in 2011 and 2012, qualified for the event by winning the USATF Indoor Championships for the fifth consecutive year.
GB's Eilidh Doyle also took bronze in the women's 400m with a season-best time of 51.60 seconds but CJ Ujah suffered a dismal end to his championships after he was disqualified for a false start in the 60m semi-finals.
By all accounts, the night belonged to Muir.
With a second half of 4:03, a last kilometre of 2:37.43 and a final lap of 29.44 seconds, Dibaba recorded her fastest ever closing splits from her world indoor 3000m victories.
Muir clocked a season's best eight minutes and 45.78 seconds on Thursday and was thankful for the £1500 taxi ride after arriving in the Midlands less than 24 hours before her first race. Hasan had no response to Muir's devastating kick, and was third in 4:07.26.
"I guess on the first night you want to do well", Muir said. "I was so focused on the race and the people in front of me that I wasn't even focusing on those behind me". I made the moves in the right places. I knew how tough it was with the long hours on the course and then fitting in training.
"Being so close to silver [in the 3,000m], after that race I knew I was in similar shape to Hassan and I could get the silver and beat her". I just ran my socks off.

All three Democrats have law enforcement experience, having each served in the Wilson County Sheriff's Office in previous years. The Texas House District 4 seat held by Lance Gooden is sought by Ashley McKee, Earl Brunner, Keith Bell and Stuart Spitzer.
Obiri, who won the title in 2012, faded to fourth after clocking 8:49.66, missing a medal as his rival Dibaba reigned supreme with a superb performance to see her complete a hat-trick of titles. "I've been there or thereabouts and thought it's time I get on a podium and I've done a double here".
That is not to take anything from Doyle, however. The Dutchwoman claimed silver in 8:45.68 but bronze was still a milestone performance for Muir.
In a fast race that saw the victor, Courtney Okolo of the United States, record a lifetime best of 50.55secs, Doyle struck on the final lap to move into third before surviving a late charge from Poland's Justyna Swiety-Ersetic at the line. After near misses at the last three major outdoor championships over 1500m, the double European indoor champion was rewarded with her first global medal in 8:45.78. "It's not my preferred event so to do this is really incredible". World 5000m bronze medallist and 2016 World Indoors 1500m champion Sifan Hassan of Netherlands will also be in the mix.
It was a slow pace race that saw Briton, cheered by home crowed take the lead as the pack went through the 400m in 1:15 while defending champion Dibaba was cruising at the back of the bunched group.
"I had to send a few emails saying: 'I've got a big competition coming up, is it OK if I have a couple of days?' They were fine about it".
I don't think Andrew Pozzi needs to step up much more. "I'm testing my flat speed and it is clearly there so I'll look forward to getting back to the hurdles".
