In 2019, Brand South Africa acknowledged gsport for the work it was doing to help show young women that they are capable of achieving great things, by showcasing role models from all communities.
“We are seeing women achieve great things on the international sporting stage, and their stories have been told and will continue to be shared through gsport with support of our long-standing partner Brand South Africa”, said Kass Naidoo, Founder of gsport.
This year, Brand South Africa will proudly present the Para Sport Star of the Year Award, previously won by sporting legends like Natalie du Toit and Kgothatso Montjane.
Brand South Africa Acting CEO, Sithembile Ntombela explained the decision for continued support of the gsport awards:
“Play Your Part is Brand South Africa’s programme that was created to inspire, empower and celebrate active citizenship in South Africa.” – Brand South Africa Acting CEO, Sithembile Ntombela
“It aims to lift the spirit of our nation by inspiring all South Africans to contribute to positive change, become involved and start doing. Celebrating and supporting women initiatives is at the core of what Play Your Part agenda is about “. This is exactly why we see such value in partnering with gsport.
“gsport’s ambition to unearth icons and role models and raise the profile of women’s sport aligns perfectly to what we are trying to achieve, and is truly a #ProudlySouthAfrican platform.”
gsport will celebrate the 16th edition of the Momentum gsport Awards on 31 August 2021, where over 20 winners will be recognised and awarded for their achievements over the last year.
