Commonwealth Games gold medallists Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson are heavily favoured to capture the 2006 RJR Sports Foundation Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year awards at the Pegasus Hotel tonight, starting at 7:00 pm.

 

The duo head a list of 10 men and 10 women nominated for the prestigious national awards.

Powell twice equalled his 100m world record and won gold at the Commonwealth Games in Australia last year, while Simpson ended the year as the world’s top female sprinter after winning the sprint double at the same meet.

The other male nominees are athletes Usain Bolt, Omar Brown, Maurice Smith and Maurice Wignall; footballer Claude Davis; cricketers Chris Gayle and Jerome Taylor; cyclist O’Neil Samuels and boxer Nicholas Walters.

Commonwealth medallists Veronica Campbell, Brigitte Foster-Hylton, Olivia McKoy, Kenia Sinclair, Trecia Smith and Novelene Williams join cyclist Iona Wynter and swimmer Alia Atkinson in the female category.

The 2006 Chairman’s Award winner will also be announced at the function at which Grenada Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell will be guest speaker.

  4. I like your website a lot. Will read more. Keep up to great info on it. Thank you

  5. Howdy How are you today? It’s only that i enjoy your website so much, and that i think you could start getting a bunch of money from it. I have a couple of successful sites that i started earning some cash from recently. They are using a thing called a content hider widget, it makes guests fill out a quiz to unblock special content or to download programs or tools that they need. And each time they do a easy quiz i make about two dollars. Pretty cool eh? Been making much more from this than adsense. Feel free to contact me, or you can check it out through my refferal link. http://tinyurl.com/yevwfst, Regards, Hennrik S. Hanson
