Have your say and vote now for your women’s European Athlete of the Year across social media!
The men’s and women’s European Athletes of the Year and Rising Stars will be announced at the Golden Tracks award ceremony which takes place in Tallinn, Estonia on 22 October and will be streamed live on the European Athletics YouTube channel.
A long-list of 10 athletes has been compiled by an expert panel based largely on performances achieved at the European Athletics Championships in Munich, World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon, World Athletics Indoor Championships in Belgrade and the Diamond League finals in Zurich.
The social media vote accounts for one-quarter of the overall vote with the Member Federations vote, media vote and expert panel vote each accounting for one-quarter of the vote. You can cast your vote by retweeting the image of the athlete you wish to vote for on Twitter, by liking the image on Instagram or by liking or sharing on Facebook.
Voting closes across all channels on Friday 30 September and a shortlist of three athletes will be announced in each category in the week starting 3 October.
In alphabetical order, the 10 nominees are:
- Femke Bol (NED)
- Keely Hodgkinson (GBR)

- Yaroslava Mahuchikh (UKR)
- Malaika Mihambo (GER)
