Great Britain's Dina Asher-Smith ended her season with a second-place finish in the women's 100m at the IAAF Continental Cup in the Czech Republic.

Asher-Smith clocked 11.16 seconds in Ostrava for Europe, with Marie-Josee Ta Lou from the Ivory Coast winning in 11.14 seconds for Africa.

Asher-Smith, 22, has won three European gold medals and Commonwealth bronze this year.

She later helped an all-British team finish second in the 4x100m relay.

Kristal Awuah, Bianca Williams, Imani Lansiquot and Asher-Smith clocked 42.55secs in the relay, as they finished almost half a second behind the Americas.

The two-day IAAF Continental Cup sees four teams - Africa, the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe - compete for points across a variety of events, with each region having two representatives in each event except for relays, when they field one team each.

The Americas lead with 135 points after 19 events on day one, with Europe 12 points adrift in second.

The Americas were helped by wins for Colombia's Olympic champion Caterine Ibarguen in the triple jump and Jamaica's Danielle Williams, who beat Americas team-mate Kendra Harrison of the United States in the women's 100m hurdles.

Meanwhile, Kenya's world and Olympic champion Conseslus Kipruto easily won the 3,000m steeplechase.

A personal best in the 'wrong' event

New Zealand sprinter Joseph Millar landed a $1,000 (£773) prize after recording a personal best - in the discus.

The 25-year-old had already competed in the 200m when he stepped up to fill a slot in the event as Asia-Pacific were without a second competitor.

His best throw of 27.15m also earned a point for his team - although it fell well short of Jamaican Fedrick Dacres' winning throw of 67.97m.
