European Athlete of the Month candidate Marlon Devonish

July was the busiest month of the season so far, with two IAAF Golden League meetings in Paris and Rome and a host of National Championships, IAAF and European Athletics Premium and Permit meetings.


July also saw the European Athletics U23 and Junior Championships taking place in Debrecen and Hengelo.


Following this, European Athletics is pleased to announce their candidates for the European Athlete of the Month Award for July for both men and women, representing 14 different countries.


At the end of each month, a panel of experts produce a shortlist of the outstanding athletes and performances achieved by European athletes during that month which is e-mailed to the European athletics media and thousands of fans who have already signed up to receive news from European Athletics.


The poll is situated in the Fan Zone of the European Athletics website and the public, the media and a group of expert statisticians will cast their votes with each category counting as 33.3% of the vote. For example, the winner of the each poll will be awarded 10 pts, second 9 pts etc and the athlete on the most points after the 3 different polls have been counted will be declared the winner. In the unlikely event of a tie, Hansjörg Wirz, the President of European Athletics, will have the casting vote.


The voting will close on Monday 13 August at 12 noon CET.


The winning male and female athletes of the monthly awards will be announced and profiled on the European Athletics website and will be automatically nominated on the short list for the European Athlete of the Year Award.
