Dundee Sports Awards

Dundee Sports Awards

On Saturday the 20th of May the 22/23 Dundee Sports Award winners were unveiled at a glittering ceremony in the city’s Apex Hotel. Led by Leisure & Culture Dundee, the awards were sponsored by the Gym Rental Company.

Following a 3-year break of the awards due to the pandemic all in attendance were delighted to celebrate sport across the city. This break allowed a review of the awards and for the first time, recognition was given to the success of our elite and community sports clubs, schools, and athletes on the same evening, recognising the work taking place to provide sporting opportunities to more people in schools and communities across Dundee.

The evening was compered by Bruce Aitchison, sports enthusiast and began with a poignant moment of applause for, Jack Stewart, the 6-year-old who died suddenly recently and was a pupil at Sidlaw View Primary School and player for Dundee West FC.

Urban Moves Dance Company provided entertainment for the gathered guests before athletes Gemma Lumsdaine and Sam Hickey shared their own inspirational sporting journeys. This year’s awards were then presented before six-time British figure skating champion and Olympian, Natasha McKay, who recently announced her retirement, was recognised for the tremendous success she achieved throughout her career.

This year, saw a tremendous 123 nominations submitted for 11 award categories. Congratulations to all this year’s winners and short-listed nominees.
