Britain took overall bronze at the Championships as they secured their first top-three finish at the event since 2013.

Dobbin, the 200m British champion in 2018, is on course to run at this summer’s Tokyo Olympics but must still cement her place at next month’s trials.

She clocked 23.06 in her first outdoor appearance since the 2019 World Championships in Italy earlier this month.
