The European Athlete of the Month voting for June is underway across our European Athletics Twitter and Facebook pages. 

The voting closes at 12:00 CET on Friday 7 July. You can cast your vote on Twitter by retweeting the graphic of the athlete for whom you wish to vote for or by liking or sharing the corresponding graphic on Facebook. You can also vote for more than one athlete. 

The votes across Twitter and Facebook are combined in order to determine who will be named male and female European Athlete of the Month.    

Five male and five female athletes are nominated purely based on their performances in the previous month. However, no athlete who has served a two-year doping ban can be nominated for the award. 

The European Athlete of the Month initiative was launched in January 2007 and is designed to recognise outstanding performances set by European athletes.   

Last month’s winners were Germany’s Thomas Rohler and Belgium’s Nafissatou Thiam. Rohler moved to second on the world all-time javelin lists with 93.90m in the Doha Diamond League while Thiam moved to third on the world all-time heptathlon lists with victory in the Gotzis Hypo-Meeting where she scored 7013 points.
