Athletics Weekly - - News -

THE Oc­to­ber to De­cem­ber pe­riod is filled with var­i­ous ath­let­ics awards but none of the vot­ers are any­where near as knowl­edge­able or pas­sion­ate as the read­ers of

AW.

Dur­ing the past cou­ple of months you have given us your views on your No.1 per­form­ers of 2018 and here are the re­sults.

Dina Asher-Smith is a big favourite in your eyes as she not only wins the top fe­male Bri­tish ath­lete cat­e­gory but also the in­ter­na­tional fe­male ath­lete award af­ter her bril­liant Euro­pean gold medal-win­ning achieve­ments in Ber­lin.

Marathon world record­breaker Eliud Kip­choge is your choice as top in­ter­na­tional male ath­lete, while an­other marathoner, Mo Farah, is the No.1 Bri­tish male ath­lete of 2018.

Wheel­chair rac­ers Han­nah Cock­roft and David Weir are your picks for the para cat­e­gories, while 800m run­ner Max Bur­gin and hep­tath­lete Ni­amh Emer­son are ju­nior ath­letes of the year.

Votes cast for the mas­ters cat­e­gories were nu­mer­ous, too, with 400/800m run­ner Vir­ginia Mitchell and mid­dledis­tance run­ner Mark Symes top­ping those sec­tions.
