Nominees for Sports Star of the Year at this weekend’s SA Sports Awards, elected by members of the media, include world 400m champion Wayde van Niekerk, World Swimming Championships medallists Chad le Clos and Cameron van der Burgh, Proteas ODI captain AB de Villiers and tennis player Kevin Anderson, who broke into the world top 10 this year.

Caroline Wostmann, who won the Comrades and Two Oceans ultra-marathons this season, is the only female athlete in line for the top award. The remainder of the nominees in the various categories were announced earlier this month.

The winners will be revealed at a gala function in Bloemfontein on Sunday night.
