The Bowerman Fan Vote is off to a hot start!

More than 18,000 votes have flooded the ballot box since we opened the Fan Vote on Wednesday, July 14, at 4 pm ET, following the announcement of Men’s Finalists in 2021.

Remember: The Bowerman Fan Vote might give a finalist a leg up on the others, but it’s just a small portion of the overall tally, which also includes ballots from The Bowerman Advisory Board, each of the past winners from 2009 to 2019, one uniform vote from members of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), as well as select media personnel, statisticians and collegiate administrators.

With that said, let’s look at our FIRST OFFICIAL UPDATE of The Bowerman Fan Vote and see how JuVaughn Harrison of LSU, Cole Hocker of Oregon and Turner Washington of Arizona State are faring on the men’s side with Tara Davis of Texas, Tyra Gittens of Texas A&M and Athing Mu of Texas A&M vying for the award on the women’s side.

Mu picked up where she left off during the collegiate season.

The six-time collegiate record holder could become the SEC’s second winner in a row of the Women’s Fan Vote (Sha’Carri Richardson, 2019) and join fellow Aggie star Jessica Beard as victor of this contest (Beard won the Women’s Fan Vote back in 2011, the same year she won The Bowerman).

The Bowerman Fan Vote will be open until Tuesday, July 20, at 2 pm ET.

We’ll announce the winners later that week on TheBowerman.org.
