Famed British sprinter Dina Asher-Smith has been given the award for Sportswoman of The Year for 2019 by the Sunday Times. The 23 year old became the very first British-based woman to claim a global spring title after she claimed victory for the 200m at the World Championships that took place in Doha earlier this year. It proved to be the second successive year that the athlete has won the accolade. The English netball team also won Team of The Year award after they finished in third place at the World Cup in Liverpool that took place in July. They won the same award a year ago after they were able to earn gold at the Commonwealth Games.
Along with the 200m gold, Asher-Smith also took the 100m and 4x100m silvers, which makes her the first athlete since Mary Rand to win three medals at once at the same global championships. Katarina Johnson-Thompson finished second after she ended her long wait for the title by winning heptathlon gold for the World Championships. Khadijah Mellah won the Young Sportswoman Of The Year award after the 19 year old won an all-women Magnolia Cup in August while riding 5-1 Haverland.
Swimmer Alice Tai claimed the Disability Sportswoman of The Year award after she was able to finish the World Para Swimming Championships as its most accomplished athlete, where she earned a total of six golds from each of the six events that she participated in.
