Twenty-nine finalists representing 14 different sports have been announced as finalists for the ILT Southland Sports Awards.

With Olympic medal winners, age group world and national title holders and plenty of national winners among them, there is a stellar line up of athletes, teams, coaches, administrators and officials.

Sport Southland Chief Executive Brendon McDermott said the quality was once again, outstanding.

“To see the line-up of finalists – from shearers to Olympic Weightlifting officials to All Blacks and Olympians – is inspirational,” he said.

“These people work so hard for the results they have achieved, and to see so many Southlanders excel at international and national level is something we should all, as fellow Southlanders, be extremely proud of.”

The ILT Southland Sports Awards will be celebrated on Friday June 9 at the Ascot Park Hotel.

With legendary broadcaster Keith Quinn announced as guest speaker, LA Social locked in to entertain and 29 exceptional finalists to celebrate, the evening promised a fantastic night out, McDermott said.
