Dina Asher-Smith makes it two wins in three days with 60m success in Dusseldorf

Dina Asher-Smith made it two victories in the space of three days by winning the 60metres in Dusseldorf.

The 25-year-old equalled her personal best of 7.08 seconds to win in Karlsruhe on Friday and followed it up with a time of 7.12 secs in just her second competitive race since 2019.

Asher-Smith next competes in France in 10 days but is pleased with how her 2021 has started, building up to the European Indoor Championships in Poland in March.

She said: “I was really happy with how I started in Karlsruhe. I knew I was in good shape but sometimes it takes me a few meets to get going.

“So, I was happy to come out and perform really well a few days ago. Hopefully with a bit more training and a bit more hard work, we can push to faster times.

“The Europeans will be really exciting, it will be great to get out there in a championship again. I love championships.

“It is the most fun for me, so it will be really exciting to get out there and perform with heats, semi-finals and a final again.”
