GLASGOW – World 200m champion Dafne Schippers and European 200m champion Dina Asher-Smith will face each other over 60m at the Muller Indoor Grand Prix in Glasgow on 25 February, according to the organisers.

“We have some very strong female sprinters in the world at the moment and Dafne is certainly one of them,” quoted a release from the organizers.

“My aim over the next few years is to keep improving and turn my fourth and fifth places into podium finishes. The races in Glasgow are sure to be great,” said Asher-Smith, who is aiming to skip the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham ahead of the Commonwealth Games in April.
