Dina Asher-Smith backs new athletes’ union after Diamond League changes

Asher-Smith’s 200m world title was accompanied by silvers in the 100m and 4x100m in Doha in September

Great Britain’s 200m world champion Dina Asher-Smith says she will support the Athletics Association, an athletes’ union formed in response to changes to the Diamond League programme.

American two-time Olympic triple jump champion Christian Taylor launched the body to “fight for athletes’ rights”.

“You know you always have my support! Let’s do this,” tweeted Asher-Smith.
