Marlborough Sportsperson of the Year

7 10 2009

The 2009 Marlborough Sportsperson of the Year awards dinner is on Monday Nov 16 at the Marlborough Lines Stadium.

This year the Multisport club has been able to put forward two nominations as our club sportspeople of the year.

And they are…

Suzie Aviss, for her absolutely stunning Duathlon performances in the last year. She’s not just a good age group athlete, she’s smokin ’em in the open as well.

Matt Thomson, because no other Kayaker in Marlborough has come close. Matt was 3rd at the National Marathon Champs (which he organised) and was asked to represent NZ at the World Kayak Marathon Champs in Potugal in Sept, although he had other commitments and couldn’t compete.  Matt was also recognised for his efforts in organising (and then winning) many local kayaking events.

These nominations were confirmed at the Club AGM held on 5 Oct.
