Dina Asher-Smith was the first Brit to win World Championship sprint gold that day three years ago.
The then 23-year-old won gold in the 200m final in Doha, securing her own piece of history.
Her time of 21.88 seconds secured her first world-level senior singles title.
Asher-Smith’s title made her the seventh woman to win gold for Great Britain in Championship history, following Fatima Whitbread, Liz McColgan, Sally Gunnell, Paula Radcliffe, Christine Ohuruogu and Jessica Ennis-Hill.
She had entered the race as the favorite to win but it was a reduced field after defending champion Dafne Schippers was among those who withdrew from the event.
Asher-Smith finished fourth in the 200m in London two years earlier after fighting back with a broken foot.
She also took silver in the 100m in 2019, saying at the time: “It means so much to have done that in the 200m but to have run well in the 100m, an event I have never run at this level Being up there with the best women in the world means so much to me.”
It was a major milestone to set ahead of the Olympics, which were due to be held the following year before the coronavirus pandemic forced them to be postponed.
Unfortunately, Asher-Smith had an injury-plagued 2021 season, leaving Tokyo with just a 4x100m bronze.
Her individual dreams were shattered by a serious hamstring injury sustained at the British trials in June, and she failed to reach the 100m final before dropping out of the 200m.
