MONACO (MON): Names of Athletes of the Year 2014 will be revealed during the traditional World Athletics Gala on Friday evening at the Chapiteau de Fontvieille. The World of athletics will see new names taking the honors. Men finalists are Renaud Lavillenie, Dennis Kimetto and Mutaz Essa Barshim and women Valerie Adams, Genzebe Dibaba and Dafne Schippers. Only the Dutch sprinting European champion is expected to miss the Gala evening.
