There is no doubt that our Sports Stars are individuals who represent our Nation’s pride. And the nominees for this year’s South African Sports Star of the Year have brought us some of our most memorable sporting moments in history. They have ascended onto the world stage to win the hearts of millions across the globe, and it is now time for the South African public to vote for their favourite Sport Star of the Year.

Hashim Amla, who was the Sports Star of last year’s awards played a key role in the Proteas’ participation in the World T20 International in Sri Lanka, he will face stern competition this year from Paralympics Gold Medallist Natalie Du Toit, as well as from Oscar Pistorius who made history this year by being the first double amputee to compete in both the Olympics and Paralympics; and not to forget the man who brought the country’s first gold medal at the Olympics Chad le Clos. Also competing for Sports Star of the Year is Siyabonga Nomvete who continues to defy age by sheer professionalism on the Soccer pitch, the Queen of the track Caster Semenya and Vernon Philander whose Cricketing exploits helped the country to be top ranked in their tour to England.

These are the Athletes that made it into the Top Seven list for the Sports Star of the Year category voted for by ordinary South Africans. Now the voting public need to decipher who is the best amongst them by voting via SMS. To vote simply SMS “SPORTS” followed by the Athlete’s corresponding letter (A-G) to 33617.

The Organisers of the SA Sports Awards have set aside R1 million, plus a luxury car for the Sport Star of the Year.

We call all South Africans to support their favourite stars by voting for them. You supported them whilst they were competing on the Sports Field, now it’s time for you to compete for them, and you could stand a chance of winning a 1Series BMW for simply voting.

Voting closes on the 4th of November at 12h00, where the winner of the SA Sports Star of the Year will be announced at a glamorous Awards evening that evening at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
