Dina Asher-Smith speaks on the Olympic postponement….
LONDON (GBR): World 200m champion Dina Asher-Smith says she was relieved when this year’s Olympics were postponed until 2021. She told BBC: “When it was postponed I remember weirdly feeling personally relieved. That sounds strange for an athlete to say but I remember that day it was postponed, all gyms were shut, tracks were shut, I had no access to physios, no access for biomechanics and I had no idea of how I would train to an Olympic standard from inside my flat. In the weirdest sense I was relieved.”
For some athletes, an extra year to prepare for the Games is a gift. @dinaashersmith spoke to Britain’s teenage sprint star, @amberanning on moving to America to boost her chances to #Tokyo2020. https://t.co/gmED6eooEP
