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.

The Sport Legends Awards was introduced in 2005 and hosted annually until 2018. Sport Legends from previous years are as follows:

202220212018,  2017201620152014201320122011201020092008200720062005.

Invitations to submit nominations are circulated to local federations, regional sport councils and regional sport offices.

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 journalists, and nominated members of the Western Cape sporting community. Decisions taken by the Selection Committee during the adjudication process are final.

DCAS uses 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.
