Today's the day!
Welcome to Day 3 of our comprehensive coverage to the IAAF Athletics Awards 2017, which culminate this evening with the crowning of the male and female Athletes of the Year.
Today we continue following some of the 80-plus athletes who have descended on Monaco this week ahead of this evening's Awards presentation. Check back regularly -- we'll be posting updates up until showtime at the seaside Grimaldi Forum at 8pm tonight. And we'll be live blogging from the ceremonies in three languages: English here, as well as in Spanish and French. Stay tuned.
