Athletics stars nominated for NSWIS Awards

 

Six athletics representatives have been announced as finalists at the 2017 NSWIS Awards Dinner.

Two athletics stars have been nominated for the Office of Sport Female Athlete of the Year award. Discus thrower Dani Stevens has been recognised following her producing the throw of her life to claim silver in the world athletics championships. Sydney-based Western Australian Para athlete Madi de Rozario is up for the same award after a stellar season which included reclaiming her T54 5000m world title. Madi’s coach Louise Sauvage is a finalist in the Southern Design Coach of the Year category.

In the Arrowfield Male Athlete of the Year award James Turner has been recognised following his epic three gold medals at the World Para Athletics Championships.

Australian athletes have also been recognised for their ability to balance their sport with other commitments. Para long jumper Sarah Walsh is up for the ClubsNSW Personal Excellence Award, while pole vaulter Angus Armstrong is a finalist in the University of Sydney Academic Excellence category.

The esteemed annual awards will be presented at a gala celebration at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 16th November, with the best sporting talent from across New South Wales in attendance. The awards recognise and honour the achievements of NSWIS athletes, coaches and sport programs across eight categories.

NSWIS CEO Kevin Thompson said, “The finalists for the 2017 NSWIS Awards demonstrate the depth of talent we have amongst our athletes, coaches and sport programs here at the NSW Institute of Sport. We are all looking forward to celebrating the many highlights from the past 12 months at the awards dinner on 16 November.”
