Dominguez wins European Athlete of the Month for December



Competing in the SPAR European Cross Country Championships for the first time, Dominguez thrilled the thousands of Spanish spectators who lined the course in Toro, to give the host nation their first individual champion in any category in the history of the event.

The double European 5,000m Champion had the added satisfaction of leading the Spanish team to victory, an achievement worthy of making the front pages of most of the Spanish daily newspapers the following day.

The 32-year-old, who missed the 2007 track season through injury, now has her sights firmly set on the Beijing Olympics and with her devastating sprint finish, is sure to be close to the front when the medals are being decided.

The runners-up in the women's competition were Britain's new distance running star Steph Twell, who successfully defended her junior title in Toro and Romania's Ancuta Bobocel, who won the U23 title at the same venue

The European Athlete of the Month initiative was launched in January 2007 and is designed to recognise outstanding performers at all levels of the sport in Europe. European Athletics will name a male and female winner each month and feature the athlete on the European Athletics website. Selections are based on votes by the public, the media and a panel of European Athletics experts with each counting for 33.3% of the final vote. The winners will automatically be short listed for the European Athlete of the Year Award. There was no award in August 2007 due to the European Athlete of the Year poll.
