Fresh from winning 200m gold, 100m silver and 4x100m silver at the World Athletics Championships in Doha, British sprint star Dina Asher-Smith has been confirmed to compete at the Müller Anniversary Games at the London Stadium, part of the 2020 Diamond League, on 4-5 July.

The world champion and four-time European gold medallist will race in front of a home crowd at the London Stadium for the final time before going for a first solo Olympic sprint title at Tokyo 2020.

 

Asher-Smith will take on a world class field at the Diamond League event in London, where British fans will get a chance to give their heroes a rousing send-off before they board the plane for Japan.

The news follows the recent announcement that Asher-Smith’s British teammate and fellow world champion Katarina Johnson-Thompson will also compete at the Müller Anniversary Games, along with the Müller Indoor Grand Prix Glasgow (15 February) and Müller Grand Prix Gateshead (16 August).

“I’ve always been vocal about my love of competing in front of a home crowd, so to finish my Olympic preparations by competing at the London Stadium will be special and truly is the best send-off I could ask for,” said Asher-Smith.
