This year all the youth and junior awards were presented at the BASC Annual Dinner. Most recipients took part in panels at the Saturday afternoon events which gave BASC members an insight into the views and ambitions of up-and-coming athletes.
World and Olympic long jump champion, Greg Rutherford, was voted by BASC members as their Athlete of the Year.
As well as triumphing in the Beijing championships, Greg also took top spot at Birmingham, Stockholm and Oslo Diamond League meets, and the Diamond League finals in Zurich, winning the Diamond Race. He exceeded 8m in all competitions this year. It caps an amazing three years at the end of which Greg is the reigning Olympic, World, Commonwealth and European Champion.
