Share This

Dina Asher-Smith underlined why she is seen as a World Championships medal contender with an impressive display in the 200m at the Birmingham Grand Prix.
The British double European champion finished second behind Bahamian Shaunae Miller-Uibo, who has opted to compete in the 400m in Doha.
“This was like a Olympic or world final so it would have been a silver,” said Asher-Smith, referring to the field.
Asher-Smith led with about 40m of the race remaining before 6ft 1in Miller-Uibo, the world number one over 200m last season, eased past to take victory in 22.24 seconds.
The 23-year-old clocked 22.36 and Jamaica’s London 2012 champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, claimed third in 22.50.
