The best athletes from the 2019 EOC flagship events will be awarded at the Association of the National Olympic Committees (ANOC) Awards 2019, which will be held in Doha, Qatar on 17 October 2019.

The EOC has indeed shortlisted 5 male candidates and 5 female candidates from the multi-sport events that were held this year: the 2nd European Games in Minsk, the Summer and Winter European Youth Olympic Festivals (EYOF) respectively in Baku and Sarajevo & East Sarajevo, as well as the Games of the Small States of Europe in Montenegro. The ANOC Jury will then decide the best male and best female European athlete to receive the award. Stay tuned to find out who will be the winners!
