DINA ASHER-SMITH on the cover of our Autumn/Fall 2020 Issue 

“One of my favourite things about being an international athlete — aside from
competing, which is number one — is that I have friends from everywhere. I love
the fact that when I’m at a meeting I can go and have lunch with all the Americans
and crack jokes with them, I can go and sit with the South Africans, or I’ll be out
having fun with the Swiss girls or the French girls. You just end up having friends
from everywhere. Without sounding airy fairy, it’s really beautiful because we’re all
different culturally and we laugh about our differences, but at the same time, when
we’re in a sporting space, everybody’s the same.”

As a Team athlete and Britain’s fastest woman, Dina Asher-Smith is juggling not
only an intense training schedule, but everything that comes with having a
platform in the public eye. In our Autumn issue, she reflects on her experience of
lockdown — from buying a PlayStation she never got time to properly set up to
hearing that the Olympics had been cancelled — as well as the Black Lives Matter
movement, speaking out on her own terms, and her hopes for long-term change.
