Dabo, a distance runner from Guinea-Bissau, received the award from CIFP President Jenő Kamuti at the World Athletics Awards 2019, held at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco on 23 November.

Braima Suncar Dabo made headlines around the world after he helped fellow runner, Jonathan Busby of Aruba, to the finish line during their opening round heat of the 5000m at the World Championships. Busby was near collapse with about 200 metres left in the race, when Dabo stopped to help his distressed fellow competitor.
