Our Achievers

The Indian Newslink Indian Sports Awards were launched last year to recognise and reward achievers of Indian origin in New Zealand in various sports categories.

This was the first ever Sports Awards Programme of its type in the country.

The Awards last year had 13 individual categories, in addition to the Supreme Sportsman of the Year and Supreme Sportswoman of the Year titles.

The inaugural Awards Night, held on May 12, 2012 at the ASB Stadium was attended by several prominent sportspersons, sponsors and sports enthusiasts.
