#gsport11 Nominations List Released

by | Jul 15, 2016

Nominations have closed for the 2016 gsport Awards after 105 nominees were put forward in 245 nominations across 14 public categories over the past five weeks.

Athlete of the Year was the most popular category with 20 athletes named, followed by the Woman of the Year Award category.

To show increased support for women in sport, gsport has, for the first time in the event’s 10-year history, released the entire list of nominations before it is shortlisted to three finalists per category by the Awards judging panel.

Over the next two weeks, gsport will fact-check the nominations to address errors and omissions before the four-woman gsport judging panel deliberate the top three finalists across all categories, ahead of the start of public voting on Friday 1 of August.

Good luck to all nominees!
