Dina Asher-Smith is the world class sprinter transcending athletics to become the UK’s next icon in sport and wider culture.

The 24-year-old has already made history as the fastest British woman in history and is the 2019 World Champion over 200 metres. She’s also a two-time nominee for BBC Sports Personality of the Year, with Stormzy announcing her nomination to the world at the end of last year. She’s already carving out a pretty impressive record, but the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer presents Asher-Smith with an opportunity to create her legacy.

Dina will be in the hunt for three gold medals this summer – the 100m, the 200m, and 4 x 100m relay – and success will catapult her into the level of stardom only enjoyed by a select group of British athletes right now like Anthony Joshua and Andy Murray.

We caught up with Dina Asher-Smith at the Nike 2020 Future Forum in New York City and spoke to her about Tokyo, having the support of Dave and Stormzy, and how we can all learn from sport’s approach to mental health.
