INDIANAPOLIS - For the third year in a row, track and field fans have the opportunity to help select the annual Jesse Owens Awards winners. The honors going to the sport’s top athletes of the year is selected by a vote of the media; again this year, an online fan balloting will account for 10 percent of the votes.
The following contains a list of the nominees and paragraphs illustrating the nominees’ accomplishments for the 2012 season.
Cast your vote by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday, OCTOBER 12. BE SURE TO CHOOSE ONE MALE AND ONE FEMALE WINNER.
