The Making of Dina Asher Smith

Welcome to the second series of The Making of... from The Female Lead

Our guest this week is the fastest British Woman in history! It’s Dina Asher Smith

Dina’s career as a sprinter has been a series of firsts - she is the first British woman to win a major global sprint title. In 2018, she won three gold medals at the European championships making her the first British woman to ever win a treble at a major event.

Listen now:

As a young athlete she was the world's fastest teenager ever over 60m and 200m. And Dina still found the time to get into King’s College University to study History - a subject that she says has given her a vital perspective on everything she does. And that is exactly the kind of astute comment that Dina comes out with throughout this conversation. Dina is so wise and inspiring at only 25 years old. Our chat delved into everything from the psychology of winning, how she deals with racism and the motivational power of a McDonalds apple pie!
