American decathlete Ashton Eaton and Genzebe Dibaba of Ethiopia were today announced as the IAAF Male and Female athletes of the year for 2015.

This year’s awardees were not privileged to enjoy the atmosphere of the glitz and glamour as well as standing in the moment at the IAAF’s Annual Gala Dinner usually held in Monaco. This was cancelled due to the doping issues that have rocked the sport of track and field in the last few weeks.
