Vote for your favourites before December 1

IT’S AWARDS time again and, as we near the end of this Olympic and Paralympic year, we want you to tell us who has impressed you most in 2016.

Eight categories are listed over the next few pages of this magazine. But due to the World Masters Championships finishing close to our deadline, there is an additional category for masters on our website and also a bonus category online for the best British breakthrough of 2016.

These accolades are just a bit of fun with no real hardware up for grabs, but what better honour is there for some serious bragging rights than being named an AW athlete of the year?

Log on to in order to cast your votes.

Voting closes on December 1 with the results to be published in the December 8 edition of the magazine.


Usain Bolt: The 30-year-old won Olympic titles in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m for the third consecutive time. This ‘triple triple’ saw him take the 100m in 9.81 and 200m in 19.78 before anchoring Jamaica in the 4x100m. During an otherwise quiet season he won the 200m at the London Anniversary Games in 19.89.

Ryan Crouser: The American set an Olympic record of 22.52m to beat reigning world champion Joe Kovacs by 74cm for gold in Rio. Before 2016, the 23-year-old had a PB of only 21.11m but after improving by well over a metre he ends this year ranked equal 10th on the world all-time rankings.

Mo Farah: Took the 5000m and 10,000m Olympic titles in style in Rio and ends 2016 with the world’s fastest 5000m of 12:59.29. Not a flawless year, though, as he finished third in the IAAF World Half-marathon.

Eliud Kipchoge: After winning the London Marathon in April in 2:03:05 (eight seconds outside of the world record) the Kenyan took the Olympic title over 26.2 miles in Rio with 2:08:44 in warm conditions. In addition, he was crowned World Marathon Majors winner.

Usain Bolt: scored a golden Olympic hat-trick again
