High quality competition for Sports Awards

 

The 2013 Isle of Man Bank Sports Awards nominations have been released this morning.

Once again, competition to win the nine categories is of the highest quality.

The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony at the Villa Marina Royal Hall on Thursday 10th April.

The Guest of Honour will be double Olympic Champion Rebecca Addlington.

Sports Editor Tim Glover reports:-

The two main awards show the depth of talent currently in Manx sport.

Last year's Sportsman winner Peter Kennaugh will be up against fellow cyclist and former winner Mark Cavendish, Enduro stars Daniel and Jamie McCanney who both won World titles in 2013, English Cross-Country Champion Keith Gerrard and swimmer Grant Halsall.

The Sportswoman class is also difficult to call.

Former winners Zoe Gillings and Aalin George feature as well as Aalin's sister Kirsten, Junior British Cycling Champion Anna Christian, European Eventing Champion Yasmin Ingham and British Shooting Champion Rachel Glover.

A full list of the nominations is on the Manx Radio website.
