He is followed by sprinter Asafa Powell of Jamaica with 22.65 percent.

The ten-man shortlist, which was revealed on October 11 by the IAAF, also includes the likes of long distance runner Kenenisa Bekele of Ethiopia and American sprinter Tyson Gay.

The top three out of the ten athletes will be presented to a special jury of the International Athletic Foundation, who will then make a final selection of Athlete of the Year and announce the winner at the 2006 IAAF World Athletics Gala in Monaco on November 12.
