Dina Asher-Smith is a British sprinter. She is the fastest British woman in recorded history. Her parents, Julie and Winston, are both from Jamaica. She is the 2016 and 2018 European champion at 200 metres and the 2018 European champion at 100 metres and now tonight she became a silver medal winner at the Athletic World Championships tonight!
Dina said after the race “I’ve worked so hard for this and hopefully I’ll go onto bigger things. I thought ‘this is your time to go’ and I came away with a PB and national record. I’d have loved to win today but Shelly-Anne is an absolute legend and I’m happy. For me, it’s always been to stay focused and keep my eye on the prize. I’ve not done100m at a world champs before so it was a new experience for me at this level and I couldn’t have done it without my coaching team.”
