Voting has now opened for the BASC Athlete of the Year 2018.

As usual, the Commonwealth Games and European Championships produced a number of medal winning performances by British athletes and para-athletes, making it even more difficult to whittle the shortlist down to seven. Although it is a strong list of contenders, BASC members have the opportunity to vote for other athletes by selecting 'other' on the voting form. The seven shortlisted athletes are as follows...
