The International World Games Association (IWGA) has now launched an online vote for the athlete or the team of the year. Until 31 January supporters and friends of The World Games can cast a vote for the top athlete / the top team of 2016. Voting is available online on the IWGA website: theworldgames.org.
Voting will also be promoted on the IWGA Facebook Channel, Instagram and Twitter Accounts. This means that supporters of a candidate will be able to share their enthusiasm and encourage other fans to support an athlete or team.
Sixteen candidates have been shortlisted, and World Games fans can choose their favorite with a click. The shortlist comprises the candidates nominated by their international federations with sports on the program of The World Games 2017 in Wroclaw/Poland. As last year, some of the IWGA Athletes of the Month are candidates for election as Athlete/Team of the Year too.
