World Athletics is pleased to announce the finalists for the International Fair Play Committee’s (CIFP) Fair Play Award 2022.
In August, World Athletics invited fans to take to social media to cast their vote for the moment that best exemplified fair play during the World Athletics Championships Oregon22. Following six days of voting, the social media scores were combined with the jury votes to determine the following three finalists:
1. Katie Nageotte and Holly Bradshaw
Holly Bradshaw injured herself after her pole snapped during the pole vault warm-up session and fellow competitor Katie Nageotte ran over to immediately support her.
Knowing she would no longer be able to contend for a place in the final, Bradshaw withdrew from the competition, thus allowing another athlete to advance. Bradshaw received a lot of abuse on social media for withdrawing, but Nageotte again offered support by taking to Twitter in defence of her competitor.
