Four Brits Nominated For Euro Award

Jessica Ennis

Four British athletes have been nominated for the 2012 European Athlete of the Year. Double Olympic champion and European 5000m winner Mo Farah won the male title in 2011 and this year finds himself nominated alongside Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford and high jump bronze medallist Robbie Grabarz; Jessica Ennis is up for nomination in the female category.

The winners will be decided by votes from the general public, media, European Athletics Member Federations and an expert panel, with the results from each group of voters counting for one quarter of the athlete's final score. Each voter must select their five preferred athletes and rank them in order of priority.

Members of the public who have voted for the top three male and female athletes in the correct order in the poll will be entered into a draw to win a two-night trip for two to the Göteborg 2013 European Athletics Indoor Championships.
