The Athlete Performance Awards (Male, Female, Team, and Partners of the Year) will be seeded by the Top-8 results published by Sport Canada, therefore no nomination forms are required.
Canadian sport organizations, media and the general public are encouraged to nominate their sporting heroes for their passion, achievement and contribution to Canadian sport in 2012.
“The Canadian Sport Awards remind Canadians how sport lifts the human spirit and inspires hope,” says Leyser. “One of the highlights is the incredible and compelling stories we learn about our athletes and coaches, and their seemingly insurmountable challenges. We look forward to sharing these stories with the public through our popular Spirit of Sport Story of the Year Award”.
