Usain Bolt won the IAAF World Athlete of the Year award for the fourth time over United States hurdler Aries Merritt and Kenyan runner David Rudisha.

The Jamaican sprinter, who defended his 100 and 200 metre gold medals at this summer's Olympic Games, had previously won the award in 2008, 2009, and 2011.

United States sprinter Allyson Felix took home the women's World Athlete of the Year award.

Felix won the 200-meter gold medal in London after settling for silver four years earlier in Beijing.
