Ashleigh NELSON - Great Britain - Bronze medal in 100m at 2014 European Championships.

Ashleigh Nelson crosses the 100m finish line to win the bronze medal at the

2014 European Championship in Zurich.  Later at the championships she won a gold medal in

the women's 4 x 100 relay, with the British quartet breaking the UK record (42.24) - see below.

Her time in the final was very close to her then PB of 11.19 seconds.
