The 10 nominees for the 2017 Female Athlete of the Year have been announced and the voting process is in full swing. We look at some of the words these superwomen used to describe their incredible accomplishments.

Almaz Ayana (Ethiopia)

After winning the 10,000m world title in a world-leading 30:16.32. She won silver over 5000m a few days later.

“I am very happy to win this title. Much more than when I won the Olympic gold, because I have been sick this year and didn’t expect it. In fact, this was my first race of 2017.”
