European Athletics Championships in Berlin

Anyone else watching?

Dina Asher-Smith about to run in the Women’s 100m final

Smashed it

Gold :medal_sports:in 10.85s

Fastest time in the world this year - destroyed the rest of the field

Will be interesting how she does at the Worlds next year

She’s great, feels weird to see an actually world class British sprinter
real shame Vicaut’s not running here

3 British lads running here in the men’s 100m

Another :medal_sports: 9.95s for Hughes
Silver for GB too

Storming

Hey, they brought Berlino back for these championships!

4x100m looks nailed on for GB

Yup, she’s awesome. Hope she’s getting mad props in the UK

The BBC are doing a good job of hyping the home lads and lasses as you’d expect

bit of an anticlimax without Vicaut, ridiculous strength in depth from the Brit lads at the moment though by European standards

Vicaut’s semi was strong. Shame he couldn’t race the final

True, but both British lads there beat his semi-final time in the final

really sad

Mortifying that

As horrible as that was, she’s still a pro and surely she’d know a) how many laps to run and b) that the hadn’t rung yet. Must’ve been caught up in trying to match Nassan’s pace

Argh, really feel for her!

That Swedish pole vaulter is a bit good
