Sport BC Athlete of the Year Awards

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Sport BC Athlete of the Year Awards are being awarded this week as the province’s top athletes receive recognition for their stellar performances. Nominees and finalists have been selected and winners will be announced March 31st at the River Rock Show Theatre.

Sport BC's Athlete of the Year Awards

Award categories include: Athlete with a Disability, Coach of the Year, College Athlete of the Year, High School Female Athlete of the Year, High School Male Athlete of the Year, Junior Female Athlete of the Year, Junior Male Athlete of the Year, Master Athlete of the Year, Official of the Year, Senior Female Athlete of the Year, Senior Male Athlete of the Year, Team of the Year and University Athlete of the Year.

Winners from 2009 already announced are: Jim Armstrong for the Harry Jerome Comback Award, Mitch Berger for the Best of BC Award, KC Emerson for the Daryl Thompson Award, and John Furlong with Sportsman of the Decade.

Since 2009 wasn’t an Olympic year — and boy did 2010 start off with a bang — they have added Fan Vote categories to be able to include Olympians and Paralympians at this awards presentation.

The Fan Vote poll is up online and it’s up to the public to select their favourites. You can select Ashleigh McIvor, Denny Morrison, Scott Niedermayer, Maëlle Ricker, or Shea Weber for the Olympics category. For the Paralympic Fan Vote award, Team Armstrong – Curling, Josh Dueck, and Lauren Woolstencroft are on the ballot.

The 44th annual Sport BC Athlete of the Year Awards gala will begin with a reception at 6:30pm and the ceremony will begin at 8:00pm. I have two pairs of tickets to give away to those who are interested in attending.

    Great job Rebecca, in helping our homegrown athletes get the recognition they deserve for their hard work, determination and talent and of course, making us so proud!
