Best Male Track Athlete ESPY Award

Best Male Track Athlete ESPY Award

The Best Male Track Athlete ESPY Award was presented annually between 1993 and 2007 to the male athlete (track-and-fielder), irrespective of nationality, adjudged to be the best in a given calendar year.

Between 1993 and 2004, the award voting panel comprised variously fans; sportswriters and broadcasters, sports executives, and retired sportspersons, termed collectively experts; and ESPN personalities, but balloting thereafter was exclusively by fans over the Internet from amongst choices selected by the ESPN Select Nominating Committee.

Through the 2001 iteration of the ESPY Awards, ceremonies were conducted in February of each year to honor achievements over the previous calendar year; awards presented thereafter were conferred in June and reflected performance from the June previous.
