Dina Asher-Smith is a rising star in the world of athletics, having recently been titled the fastest British woman in recorded history. After winning the 2013 European Junior 200m title and the 2014 World Junior 100m title, Dina then became the first British woman to run the 100 metres in 11 seconds, in the following year. A record-breaker through and through, her track record is a testament to Dina’s dedication and commitment to sport. As an Olympics speaker, she reflects upon her journey to success, offering her audience an insight into elite competing.
Born in London, her first experience of running was with the Blackheath and Bromley Harriers Athletics Club, coached by John Blackie. Dina’s talent was quickly realised when she ran the 300 metres in 39.16 seconds, setting the current World age 13 best. Reflecting her early success, Dina was shortlisted for the 2013 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year. In her Olympic speeches, she discusses how she handled such pressure at a young age, offering her audience tips to remain calm.
