Dina Asher-Smith can do 'something utterly remarkable' at Tokyo Olympics as she bids for golds, says Greg Rutherford
How many medals will Dina Asher-Smith win at the Tokyo Olympic Games this summer? The Team GB sprinter is set to compete in the 100m, 200m and relay, and has been in good form ahead of the competition. Greg Rutherford, who won gold in the long jump in 2012, is hopeful that Asher-Smith will enjoy a strong summer.
‘Almost all of the pressure will be on her’ – Rutherford on Asher-Smith’s remarkable opportunity
“I think most of the pressure is going to be on Dina,” Rutherford, who won long jump gold in 2012, told Eurosport.
“Probably rightly so, she is one of the best athletes in the world, probably the best British sprinter we have ever had. She has an opportunity to do something that we haven’t associated with British sprinting since Linford Christie. We think about those moments, but we don’t think about British sprinting as a dominant force.
