Great Britain’s world heptathlon champion Katarina Johnson-Thompson has been nominated for the IAAF World Athlete of the Year award.
The 26-year-old also won the European indoor pentathlon title in March to put her among 11 nominees in the women’s category.
Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who won the 100m gold at the World Championships for the fourth time, is also one of the leading contenders.
In the men’s category, Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge – the first person to run a marathon in under two hours– and American world champion 100m sprinter Christian Coleman are the front runners for the award.
The winners are due to be announced at a ceremony in Monaco on December 23.
