Michael Wardian (USA) and Sharon Scholz (AUS) are the IAU Athletes of the Year. Congratulations to both!

I also would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the other nominated athletes: Shinji Nakadai (JPN), Meghan Arbogast (USA), Julia Fatton (GER), Susan Harrison (GBR) andSumie Inagaki (JPN) for their nominations which is an honour in itself.

Also, thanks to all of you for being an active part of this process. Without the participation of our readers and 1014 voters, none of this will be possible. Thanks!

Congrats to Inagaki as well for recently establishing the unofficial pernding ratification, world´s best performance indoor 24 Hours.

We have listed the MIAUCs for the 2011-2012-2013. As you can see some of the races are missing and we are actively looking for bids to fill those spots, including the 2011 24 Hour World Championships.

Please also refer to our calendar of races for IAU-Labelled events for 2011.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
