Dina Asher-Smith (born 4 December 1995) is a British sprinter who holds the British records for both the 100 metres and 200 metres. In the 4 x 100 metres relay, she won bronze medals at the 2016 Summer Olympics

Dina Asher-Smith suffered a broken foot in her final training session before the Birmingham Indoor Grand Prix and has been forced to pull out of the event. The 21-year-old sprinter, who won Olympic bronze as part of Britain's 4x100m women's relay team at Rio 2016, said she was "gutted" to miss out. 

"What are the odds!" she tweeted. "Last session before the Grand Prix, last reactive jump, and I land awkwardly on my foot and fracture it." She added: "So upset and frustrated but it was a freak accident, one of those unavoidable things in life I guess. Comeback starts now."

Trying to get back to competitive sprinting from a broken foot after having surgery is no easy task at the best of times - let alone with a time frame of about three months. Without using the underwater treadmill it would have been infinitely harder. I was able to start walking and then running sessions underwater about 6 weeks before I was able to do them on hard ground, which obviously made an enormous difference. The work I was able to put in there, from not only a rehab perspective but also in terms of developing my cardiovascular and muscle strength was amazing. I have probably come out stronger than before. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to enhance a rehab programme or develop their training.
