  • T&FN AOY (choices now public)

    WOMEN
    =====
    The Days Best Reading says for the T&FN AOY for women "Koch is the only 4-time winner (JJK has 3, but nobody has ever won more than 2 in a row)".

    As Val Adams won in 2012 and again in 2013, and given she is the 2014 IAAF AOY, then logic suggests she will become the first three-peat winner. However, as much as I would love to see Val do us kiwis proud with such an achievement, I am predicting the women's T&FN AOY will be Ibarguen.

    More straight forward. I reckon the IAAF and T&FN will be in agreement with Lavillenie.

    I think Val's win at IAAF was political so whilst she'll be high in this don't see her winning.

        Ibarguen and Wlodarczyk could both end up ahead of Val.

              And for a running tally on AOD thus far, we have Rudisha & Adams.

                Exactly. The lesser of 4 evils to them (And get to try and make up for past mistakes at the same time).

                    Nice work T&FN

                    Wlodarczyk is my No1 and the top 10 would be mine as well but in different order

                    All round very happy

                      Can't argue with #1 but really surprised Queen Val got so many #1 votes and ended up so easily 2nd.

                      Is have her easily behind Ibarguen and Sandy P.

                        Same here

                        I also have no idea how Kaliese Spencer got so high ? her times were VERY ordinary

                        GH has there ever been a top 4 field eventers before ?

                          I have too many DISagreements w/ this list, so maybe I should remain silent.
                          BUT......I am who I am, so......

                          Why is Perkovic so high?
                          She lost twice to GLS! (T&FN gives least points to marks, so her list-leading marks shouldn't carry enough weight to place her so high!)

                          Where is Simpson?
                          And why is Dibaba so high.....or even ON the list??
                          Oh, I know, you count her INdoor marks--though maybe giving them less weight!
                          Well, I 100% separate IN from OUT seasons. So Dibaba would EASILY win my INdoor award, but wouldn't come close to rating on my Top 10 OUTdoor list!

                          I agree with Mump Boy about Spencer.
                          Not on MY list.....or at least not so high!

                          I love Val Adams, but while she won every meet, she had no real competition, so I saw them as mostly exhibitions! (Albeit GREAT exhibitions!!)

                          And I agree on Wlodarczyk as Number One.
                          She was the only female who broke a WR......an OUTdoor WR, that is!!

                            When I see "Polish Hammer", I think of Ivan Putski.

                              Joe Bednarski! An old Southwest Texas boy...

                              Aaron, I'm gonna hate myself for even asking, but why would Simpson be on the list when she didn't win half her races?
