Hejnová in contention for Athlete of the Year Award

The women’s 400 metres hurdles world champion Zuzana Hejnová has been included on a shortlist of candidates for the IAAF Athlete of the Year Award. The Czech, who was undefeated in the 2013 season, is one of 10 names on a list that will be whittled down to three in a poll of people active in the athletics field. An expert panel will then choose the winner with the name announced at a gala event in mid November.
