With eight days to go until the IAAF Athletics Awards 2018, the finalists for the IAAF Photograph of the Year award have been selected.
From the 70 images that were submitted, a panel of judges – comprising Anthony Edgar, Bob Martin, Raquel Cavaco-Nunes and Dwight Phillips – were given the task to whittle down the entries to three. A tie for third resulted in four finalists this year.
