Asher-Smith sets new record

29 January, 2023

Dina Asher-Smith set a new British record as she won the women’s 60m at the World Indoor Tour in Germany.

Asher-Smith clocked a time of 7.04 seconds to beat Poland’s Ewa Swoboda, who finished in 7.09secs.

Swiss sprinter Mujinga Kambundji took third in 7.11secs at the Karlsruhe event.

Asher-Smith’s time surpassed Asha Philip’s previous mark of 7.06secs, set when winning the European title in 2017.

It marks a strong start to 2023 for Asher-Smith, who endured a stop-start season in 2022 after injury forced her to withdraw from the Commonwealth Games.
