Three days of action in the UK Athletics Championships got underway on Friday in Manchester.

Dina Asher-Smith headlines England’s recently announced squad for the Commonwealth Games and she’ll be looking for a strong showing in the 100 metres this week ahead of a big summer.

The 26-year-old was hampered by a hamstring injury at last summer’s Olympics but with World and European Championships to come, either side of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, there are plenty of chances coming up for her to shine. Asher-Smith will be defending her 200m world title in the US next month.

Reece Prescod and Max Burgin both arrive full of confident after sensational recent performances, while Jazmin Sawyers and Abigail Irozuru look set for a thrilling battle in the women’s long jump.
