Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, as expected, walked away with top honours at the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association/Scotiabank Golden Cleats Awards today at the Terra Nova Hotel.


The IAAF Male and Female World Athletes of the Year continued their award-winning run after winning three gold medals each (100m, 200m and 4x100m) at this year's IAAF World Championships in Moscow.

Glen Mills was named coach of the year.

IAAF World Youth Championships stars Yanique Thompson and Christoffe Bryan received the Scotiabank Group Howard Aris scholarship, valued at $250,000 each.
