The one and only Dina Asher-Smith made history last night to become the first British women’s sprinter to claim a World Championship title.

History graduate Asher-Smith was rapid off the blocks to shock the world by winning gold in the 200m race by finishing it in a British record of 21.88 seconds.

The 23-year-old started out at the Blackheath and Bromley Harriers and claimed a silver medal in the 100m on Sunday.

Afterwards claiming gold, she said: "The Olympics is less than a year away, we have already been thinking about it. I don't think there's any time we're not thinking about the Olympics.

"Doing well in Doha was part of the plan and in thinking about Doha you're thinking about the Olympics as well.

"It means so much. There are so many British fans here and I know lots of Brits live in Doha but lots have travelled and for my mum to be here, my dad, John (Blackie, coach) and his wife and my physios it means so much.

"It's a different thing with everyone saying you're the favourite but it's a different thing going and doing it."

Bromley Council tweeted earlier: "Congratulations @dinaashersmith for your stunning win in the women’s 200m final at the World Championships last night. Well done, #Bromley is very proud of you."

Local Facebook group Orpington Gossip has changed its profile picture to show Asher-Smith proudly holding the British flag.

She is now just the seventh British woman to win a world individual title joining Fatima Whitbread, Liz McColgan, Sally Gunnell, Paula Radcliffe, Christine Ohuruogu and Jessica Ennis-Hill.
