Three members of Blackheath & Bromley secured selection for the World Championships at Beijing in August with their performances at the Sainsburys British Championships at Birmingham’s Alexander Stadium.

Dina Asher Smith was a class apart in the 100 metres. The 19 year old British record holder won the final in 11.08 just six hundredths of a second off her best and looks quite capable of going under 11 seconds.

Joining her in Beijing will be second claim member Isobel Pooley, who not only won the high jump but did so with a new National Record of 1.97.

The trio is completed by Lorraine Ugen. In a contest part of which took place during an electrical storm, she finished second in the long jump with a distance of 6.69.

Others just missed out on medals. Serita Solomon, who has run inside the World qualifying standard, was 4th in the 100 metre hurdles in 13.14 as was Chioma Matthews in the triple with a leap of 12.94 with Zara Asante 6th in 12.82.

Shaunagh Brown was 5th in the hammer with 60.34; Jermaine Olasan and Oliver Newport 7th and 9th in the long jump with 7.27 and 7.15; Jonathan Ilori 8th in the triple jump (15.19); Matt Blandford 10th in the discus (48.48); and Graham Rush 19th in the 5000 (14.38.08).

Rachel Dickens and James Alaka (200s); Vivien Olatunji, Montell Douglas, Toby Olubi, Duayne Bovell and Cameron Starr (100s); and Carolyn Plateau (1500) were in action in the heats.
