Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula is expected to announce the nominees of the 2011 South African Sports Awards later this evening in Rustenburg.

When launching the SA Sports Award last month in Johannesburg, Mbalula dedicated the event to newly crowned world female welterweight champion, Noni Tenge.

The theme for this year’s awards is, ‘Today’s Leaders, Tomorrow’s Legends’. The awards will be held on 21 August at Sun City in the North West province.

The event is a programme of the Sports and Recreation Department in partnership with the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and the North West Department of Sports, Arts and Culture.

Mbalula said: “The Sports Awards are imperative as they are not only a platform for incentive and jollity for sport excellence, but a celebration of human triumph.”

The judges of the awards are a panel of experts including Doctor Khumalo, Kass Naidoo, Gary Lemke and Cynthia Tshaka. To ensure that the awards are fairly done, an auditing company will be appointed to oversee the process.
