The 17-year-old will go up against golfer and Solheim Cup winner Charley Hull, double world track champion cyclist Becky James and Team GB heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson.

Dina has been in dazzling form this year, claiming double gold in the 200m and 4x100m relay at the European Athletics Junior Championships in Italy back in July.

She then went on to claim bronze in the World Championships in Moscow as part of the Great Britain 4x100m relay team in August.

The Blackheath & Bromley Harrier ran the opening leg in the final, as the team initially finished fourth - but were handed third place after France were disqualified for a bad baton change.

Last month, Dina was handed the London Biggin Hill Airport Outstanding Athlete of the Year award as the Harriers celebrated their athletes at The Ravensbourne School, in Hayes Lane, Bromley.
