Dina Asher-Smith is a strong hope for Team GB at Tokyo 2020
As a country renowned for producing some of the best track athletes at elite level, the latest star emerging is Dina Asher-Smith, who is following in the footsteps of her iconic predecessors.
With Mo Farah, Jess Ennis and Greg Rutherford absent from the Tokyo 2020 line up, there’s a place for up and coming names to take their place as Team GB’s medal hopefuls.
Great Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith completed a European Championships sprint double in Berlin earlier this year, achieving the fastest 100m time by a woman in 2018. Asher-Smith exceeded all expectations to break her own British record to win the 100m and left world champion Dafne Schippers trailing to take 200m gold in 21.89 seconds. Showing her charming personality, she claimed her mother had promised her a new handbag if she hit the 21 second mark – a ritual they follow prior to every race.
Her skill is undeniable, with every race showing how much more she can give as she builds up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. But as well as her impressive racing ability, there is a captivating charm about Asher-Smith that has fans all over Great Britain rooting for her success. Articulate, passionate and proud – she encapsulates what it is to be part of Team GB.
Tokyo 2020 promises to be one of the most exciting and innovative games yet, and with a new era of athletes emerging, the Team GB squad is looking to bring new excitement to our nation.
Team GB are looking to beat their record-breaking Rio 2016 achievements and maintain their spot in the top half of the medal table. Although the athletics line up will differ from previous Olympic Games, the emerging Team GB stars are a promising hope to bring home a medal for our country.
