DINA ASHER-SMITH goes into this week­end’s British Cham­pi­onships as one of the red-hot favourites to win her event, but the UK record-holder’s early strides in the sport were not al­ways so as­sured.

In a 2009 in­ter­view with AW when she was 13 years old, we re­ported that she sprinted away from her un­cle in a lo­cal park as a tod­dler … and af­ter her rel­a­tive was un­able to catch her she fell into a pond!
