Wednesday, 15 July, 2020, will go down as one of the best days on the @gsport4girls Twitter timeline as South Africans thronged online to salute their favourite women in sport who cracked the preliminary nominees list.

As a show of transparency, gsport decided to exclusively publish the list in the popular Momentum gsport Awards newsletter, but we weren’t ready for what was to come.

For over 24 hours, notifications buzzed, as the country stood up for women’s sport in a powerful show of online support.


Check out the #gsport15 hashtag for more amazing messages from nominees and supporters of women’s sport about the impact the Momentum gsport Awards is making on the lives of women in sport.

What is so special about this year’s nominees list is that at least 50% are new names, grassroots sport is well represented and University sport has risen up.

The focus now moves to the judging process. We have appointed an elite judging panel, which will be announced in the coming days.

The role of the panel is to shortlist top three finalists in each category.

Finalists will be announced on Saturday, 1 August 2020.
