Dina Asher-Smith produced one of the outstanding efforts in the first World Athletics Indoor Tour Gold meeting of the season in Karlsruhe tonight as she won the 60 metres in a British record of 7.04sec.

The 2019 world 200m champion, whose career has been hindered over the last couple of years by injury, took 0.02sec of the existing national mark as she equalled the meeting record set 27 years ago by Russia's Irina Privalova.

Poland's 2019 European indoor champion Ewa Swoboda was second in the Messehalle in 7.09, with world indoor champion Mujinga Kambundji of Switzerland third in 7.11 and Britain’s Darryl Neita fourth in 7.16.

Ethiopia’s 17-year-old Abdisa Fayisa made his mark with victory in the men's 3,000m in 7:40.35, a world indoor age-17 best and the fastest time run at this early stage of the year.

Portugal’s world indoor shot put champion Auriol Dongmo ended the winning streak set by world champion Chase Ealey thanks to a fourth-round effort of 18.90m to win by two centimetres from Canada’s Commonwealth champion Sarah Mitton.

Ethiopia’s women’s world indoor 3,000m champion Lemlem Hailu did just enough to earn victory in 8min 37.55 ahead of compatriot Werkuha Getachew, the world steeplechase silver medallist, who clocked a personal best of 8:37.98.

Cuba’s Liadagmis Povea won the women’s triple jump with an indoor personal best of 14.64 metres.

In the men’s pole vault, USA’s KC Lightfoot earned his first victory at a World Indoor Tour meeting, with 5.83m.

In the women's long jump, Serbia’s double world indoor champion Ivana Vuleta won with a best of 6.76m.

The Karlsruhe Gold meeting was the first of seven of its kind during the indoor season, with the series concluding in Birmingham on February 25.

The European Athletics Indoor Championships will then take place in Istanbul from March 3 to 5.
