Asha is a girl of many talents former World Trampoline Champion, as well as being the first British athlete to become the World Youth Champion in 100m in 2006.

2007 brought a sudden halt to Ashas athletics career when she ruptured the cruciate ligament in her right knee while competing in the Double-mini Trampoline World Championships. This was a big blow for Asha; it took 4 years for her to get back to fine form. Asha came back with a bang, and shocked her rivals in her first race of the 2012 indoor season running a PB of 7.24secs  

Asha was ranked number 1 in the UK, in 2012 with a PB of 7.19secs in the 60m, and is also ranked 4th on Britain's All-Time list. Many believe she is capable of breaking the British record of 7.08secs

Asha was selected for 2012 World Indoor Championships in Turkey where she made the semi-finals.

Asha was set to run fast times outdoors following her fantastic indoor season, however she picked up and hamstring injury and was unable to finish the rest of the season, and qualify for the Olympics which was well within her capabilities. 

Asha is still hungry for success, and is fighting for even faster times for the coming 2013 season and will be aiming for the World Championships in Moscow this August.
