The Turkish Athletic Federation announced Wednesday the country’s list of top athletes in their sports in 2020.

The federation said in a statement that new records were set in the summer season, which was shortened due to the novel coronavirus pandemic to only nine months.

Following the Balkan Senior Championship that ended last week, the athletes had a short hiatus before starting to prepare for indoor competitions slated for December, it added.
