Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula has called on South Africa to vote for our IAAF Athlete of the Year nominees.
Olympic champions Wayde van Niekerk and Caster Semenya have dominated their events in the last year.

“These prestigious awards present yet another platform to inspire more young athletes to represent our country with excellence.”
