Patrick Johnson To Host SP Sports Awards

The prestigious SP Sports Awards will host Australian Sprinter, Patrick Johnson, as the guest of honor for the night.

Johnson is the current Oceanian and Australian record holder in the 100 metres, with a time of 9.93 seconds.


All three finalists were nominated for 14 categories, while the Team of the Year award is mandated to the public to vote.

It’s on again for the SP Sports Awards, as they reward the on and off field performances of sporting personnel, along with the people contributing to developing sports.


Fourteen categories have been finalized with three finalists, including the Team of the Year, which has been given to the general public to select from three finalists.


The three finalists are our National Cricket men’s team, PNG Barramundis, National Volleyball men’s team, PNG Amoa and our National Women’s Netball Team, PNG Pepes. 


All three teams took the international stage with pride and dignity, flying the PNG colours. The onus is now the People of Papua New Guinea to vote their teams by texting the team’s name to 1630.


The guest speaker of the night is none other than sprinter Patrick Johnson.


He is currently the Oceanian and Australian record holder in the 100m with a time of 9.93 seconds. The time has made him the 17th fastest man in history, and 38th man to crack the 10 second barrier.


Johnson is a living testimony for our athletes as they gear up for the 2015 Pacific Games.


PNG athletics sensations Betty Burua and Toea Wisil, who are currently overseas, and PNG Tennis Star Abigail Tere Apisah, are locked in for Sportswoman of the Year award.


Sportsman of the year finalists include Charles Amini Jnr in Cricket, Steven Kari in Weightlifting and Jack Viyufa in Bodybuilding.
