Sport Legends 2018

(Western Cape Government)

The Western Cape Acknowledges Sport Legends

The Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) is proud to acknowledge and honour legends, heroes and icons who have made a significant contribution to the development, transformation and growth of sport in South Africa and, more specifically, in the Western Cape.

This year the Sport Legends Awards will focus on ALL SPORTING CODES and SCHOOL SPORT (EDUCATORS).

Invitations to submit nominations for a Sports Legends Award are circulated to the local federations, regional sport councils and regional sport offices. Guidelines are available on the nomination form. The closing date for nominations was 7 September 2018.

Nominations are reviewed by the Transformation and Monitoring Committee and submitted to the Selection Committee for adjudication. The Selection Committee consists of representative from regional sport councils; nominated media journalist(s), and nominated member(s) of the Western Cape sporting community. Decisions taken by the Selection Committee during the adjudication process are final. DCAS hosts its annual Sport Legends Ceremony in December. 

Sport Legends from previous years are as follows: 2017201620152014201320122011201020092008200720062005

DCAS continues to use sport to bring people from all walks of life together. As we unify the nation, we can work better together and leave a legacy for generations to come.
