Daryll has been supported by Greenwich Starting Blocks for a number of years. She is a local athlete who still lives and trains in Greenwich. The highlight of her career was winning a bronze medal at the Rio 2016 Olympics in the 4x100m relay. On 17 June 2017, Neita improved her 100 metres personal best to 11.20 secs at the England U23 Championships, before going on to finish second at the British Championships on 1 July, running 11.25, earning World Championship selection. A week later at the Anniversary Games in London, she further improved her 100 metres best with 11.14, to move to seventh on the UK all-time list.

Daryll will run in the 100m at the World Championships which are being hosted in London for the first time. She is going from strength to strength, with recent personal bests Team GB have high hopes for her results at the championships. Daryll will also be part of the 4x100m relay squad where the team hopes to medal again.
