Nafi Thiam awarded Belgian golden spike award

Heptathlete Nafissatou Thiam and decathlete Thomas Van der Plaetsen were awarded the Golden Spike Award at a ceremony in Stayen, a brand new multi purpose venue exploited by STVV Sint-Truiden.

The Golden Spike Award goes to the Male and Female Athlete of the Year in Belgian athletics. It is a tradition for the Belgian Athletics Federation to organise a poll to designate the laureates.

For Thiam, who claimed a momentous Olympic gold medal in the heptathlon at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games with a world-leading NR of 6810 points, it is the fourth time in a row she has been named Belgian Female Athlete of the Year.
