Dina Asher-Smith says she is 'over the moon' after becoming the fastest British female sprinter in history with tremendous 100m performance at the AA Drink FBK Games on 24 May.

The 19-year-old, a former world junior champion who also won silver over 60m at the European Indoor Championships at Prague in March, finished second to heptathlete Dafne Schippers once again at the IAAF World Challenge meeting in in Hengelo, Netherlands.

However, an excellent time of 11.02 seconds was enough to surpass the previous record and Asher-Smith revealed after the race that she had been initially disappointed with her start before the realisation of the achievement finally set in.

"I wasn't completely happy with it because my start was only alright and at the end I felt like I tightened up and lost my form," she was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

"So at first I was a bit annoyed. I looked at Dafne's time and I thought it was amazing but I didn't think I was anywhere near her so I'd wasted the opportunity.

"But then my time flashed up and I was absolutely over the moon. I really wasn't expecting to run that time with the kind of race that I ran. So I was really, really happy."

There was more success for Britain in the men's 100m, meanwhile, where Chijindu Ujah took victory over Akani Simbine in a time of 10.09sec. Compatriot Adam Gemili crossed the line third in 10.19sec.

"Good meet in Hengelo yesterday! Happy with the win & SB, thank god for keeping me healthy! #OnToTheNext1," Londoner Ujah tweeted.
