Over 450 members voted, with half backing Farah for the award. World relay silver medalist Dina Asher-Smith was runner-up, and Diamond League champion and world relay gold medalist CJ Ujah in third place.
Other athletes on the shortlist were: Aled Davies, Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake, Sammi Kinghorn and Nick Miller. Members were also able to vote for other athletes, and a further ten received votes behind the shortlisted athletes. These included Laura Muir, Callum Hawkins and Eilish McColgan, all of whom had good seasons.
