From the 100 images that were submitted, a panel of judges – comprising David Burnett, Anthony Edgar, Raquel Cavaco-Nunes, Dwight Phillips and Rafael Segui – has whittled down the entries to three finalists:
The winner will be announced live on stage at the IAAF Athletics Awards 2017 on Friday 24 November.
The 25 shortlisted images will also form part of a photography exhibition which will be held alongside the IAAF Athletics Awards from 22-26 November in Monaco.
