Kennaugh and Gillings take top honours at sports awards

Olympic Champion cyclist Peter Kennaugh and World Cup snowboardcrosser Zoe Gillings were the big winners at Thursday night's Isle of Man Bank Sports Awards.

They were named as Sportsman and Sportswoman for their achievements in 2012.

Neither was able to attend the ceremony, as they are both currently off-Island competing.

Other winners were Manx Ambassador Mark Cavendish, the Isle of Man Cricket team, Kevin Manning, Chris Hattersley, Joe Boyd, Danny McCanney and Laura Kinley.

Former Isle of Man Sport Chairman Geoff Karran picked up the lifetime achievement gong and sidecar ace Dave Molyneux picked up the special achievement in the Isle of Man award for his double success at TT 2012.

Peter Kennaugh says he's delighted to win and honoured by the public reaction to his gold medal triumph:
