“[Norwegian runner] Karsten Warholm from Norway and Authorised Neutral Athlete Mariya Lasitskene were crowned European Athletes of the Year at the annual Golden Tracks award ceremony which took place in Tallinn, Estonia on Saturday (26),” the EAA said.
Lasitskene said that it was an honor for her to receive this award.
“It is a huge honour to win this award and be recognised as the Athlete of the Year by European Athletics ... It has been a great year for me and it was a thrill to become the first high jumper to win the World Championships on three occasions,” she said at the ceremony.
