For me, the athlete of the year is Maria Lasitskene. Not only because in this difficult year for Russian athletics she became a two-time European indoor champion, a three-time world champion and won the Diamond League for the fourth time. Not only because her merits are recognized both in Russia (ARAF named her the athlete of the year), and in Europe (athlete of the year according to the European Athletics Association), and she is also included in other world rankings. But she also became the athlete of the year for me, because she was the only one who was not afraid to honestly and openly express her position regarding the doping scandals and the removal of Russia from international starts and call to account the lying sports officials. Few athletes around the world have found it as difficult to pursue their profession this year. And she coped brilliantly no matter what.

Eluid Kipchoge - of course. This year, the most important thing that happened in sports (okay, I only count athletics now) is Eluid's phenomenal successful attempt to run a marathon in two hours. For those who are not in the know: the cherished dream of runners around the world. Run 42 kilometers 195 meters in 1:59:59 - or faster. The magic of numbers, the limit of what is possible. You have to run very smoothly and quickly, very quickly, run for two hours. For an ordinary person, such speed is difficult even at a distance of a kilometer (and at 400 meters on a track it is also difficult). Yes, of course, behind this amazing record there is an equally amazing team of hundreds of people, preparation, conditions - but Eluid did it. One person with the way his body and head work, what willpower and faith in himself and his team he possesses.

It is worth learning from him not running fast, but the strength of mind, the way he speaks about the limits of human capabilities. There is none of them. No human is limited.
