Four female athletes from the NSW Institute of Sport have received individual nominations for awards in the annual Women’s Health Women In Sport Awards.
Ski Moguls athlete Britt Cox receives a nomination for Sportswomen of the Year following her achievements this year on the world stage. Madison de Rozario, who performed outstandingly at the Para Athletics World Championships in London last month winning gold in the 5000m, is nominated for Moment of the Year, whilst Para Snowboarder Joany Badenhorst gets a nod for One to Watch.
The accolades don’t stop there, with the entire Aussie Stingers squad nominated for Team of the Year. The national women’s water polo team features a number of NSWIS Scholarship Holders, including captain Rowie Webster, who is also nominated in her own right for Leadership Legend.
Now in their seventh year, the prestigious Women’s Health Women in Sport Awards recognise and celebrate Australia’s female athletes – from grassroots through to elite professional level – and their achievements over the past 12 months.
This year, more than 30 talented, dedicated and passionate Australian sportswomen are being honoured as nominees across nine award categories. And for Moment of the Year, the Australian public can decide on who they feel deserves the top gong.
Jacqui Mooney, Editor for Women’s Health, is eager to showcase the many talented female athletes up for awards.
“It’s been an incredible year in Australian women’s sport, with so many highlights: from the history-making launch of AFL Women’s, to the Big Bash League and the Super Netball.
“I’m so excited to bring these achievements to the fore, and celebrate so many amazing women across a diverse range of disciplines.
“WinS was created to shine a light on our amazingly talented homegrown female athletes, and I look forward to toasting their successes at our Awards night next month.”
