Dina Asher-Smith started breaking records at a young age, running a world-best 39.16 seconds in the 300m aged just 13.
After a successful age-group career, taking the 200m title at the 2013 European Junior Championships and winning the 100m at the 2014 World Junior Championships, the sprinter’s first senior medal was 4x100m bronze at the 2013 World Championships in Moscow.
Asher-Smith added 60m silver at the European Indoor Championships two years later, before enjoying a stellar debut Olympic Games at Rio 2016, where she finished fifth in the 200m final before forming part of the women's 4x100m relay squad which claimed bronze.
The Orpington-born athlete is rarely seen without a smile on her face and her grin was larger than ever after she won 4x100m silver in the London Stadium at the 2017 World Championships, despite breaking her foot five months earlier.
Asher-Smith enjoyed a dream 2018, claiming 4x100m gold and 200m bronze at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia, before taking Europe by storm over the summer.
The London athlete became one of the undoubted stars of the 2018 European Athletics Championships in Berlin, claiming a historic sprint treble by taking gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay, the first British woman to achieve this feat at a major championships.
