BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Dina Asher-Smith on study, sacrifices and sprinting
Asher-Smith on study & sprinting
- From the section Get Inspired
Dina Asher-Smith is not your typical university student.
The 19-year-old divides her time between Kings College in London and the Blackheath and Bromley Athletics Club where she trains for the British athletics team.
Although her double life means that Dina doesn't lead a typical student lifestyle with late nights and sweet treats, the sprinter says the two compliment each other. "I don't have time to dwell on anything that didn't go right on Friday because I know that on Friday I have an essay due in by 4pm!"
Dina will compete at the European Indoor Championships in Prague this weekend, after setting a new personal best time over 60 metres this season.
