Dina is a contender
Dina Asher Smith is on the shortlist for the BBC’s Young Sports Personality of the Year. The Blackheath & Bromley athlete receives her nomination after becoming the second youngest female ever to have won a medal at the World Athletics Championships. She was part of the Great Britain 4x100 metres team who took bronze in Moscow earlier this Summer. She is also the current European Junior 200 metre champion.
Adam Gemili did not win a medal at Moscow but his performance in the 200 metres has won him the Athletics Weekly Breakthrough Award. He became only the second Briton ever to run inside 20 seconds when he clocked 19.98 in his semi final. He also finished runner up in the British Male Athlete of the year award behind double World Champion Mo Farah. Dina was third in the British Junior Female athlete of the year.
The Club over 60s team won gold medals at the Kent Masters Cross Country Championships at Danson Park. Graham Coates won the individual silver medal, the highest placed Club member on the day, with Rob Brown in 11th and Chris Pike 13th.
