We’re back!

That’s right, on December 4th at the Celtic Manor, Sport Wales and BBC Cymru Wales are teaming up once again for the Wales Sport Awards.

The very best and most inspiring of elite and grassroots sport will join together to celebrate the passion we have for our sporty and active nation.

Got someone in mind that you want to shout about?

The nominations for the Community Awards open next week (Tuesday 18 September), but there’s no reason why you can’t get a head start and get those thinking caps on!

  • Do you know a young person who goes above and beyond to help motivate others to get active?
  • Are you eager to help get a hardworking volunteer recognised for all the hours they give to their community?
  • Perhaps you’ve been inspired to try a new sport yourself and think the organisation or session deserve an award?  

Need to refresh your mind on what happened last year? No problem!

After a difficult time with mental illness, Hannah Nolan gave back to her community by volunteering in sport and was recognised as the Inspiring Young Person of the Year. 

Transforming lives through sport, Disability Sport Wales took the Organisation of the Year Award. 

The ladies were out in force, as Us Girls picked up their award for Sporting Experience of the Year.

Mark James was recognised as Community Voulunteer of the Year for his dedication in coaching boxing in Newport.

While, Mike Blake swapped the high-vis jacket for a suit to collect the BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero Award, for his 40 years + time helping Eryri Harriers in North Wales.

Fateha Ahmed took the Volunteer of the Year accolade after the amazing work she did the help get Muslim women in Cardiff swimming. 

With lots more awards up for grabs on the night, from Team of the Year (Cardiff Devils Ice Hockey) to the coveted BBC Cymru Wales Sports Personality of the Year (Jonathan Davies), we are very excited to meet this year’s winners.
