BT Action Woman of the Year Wants YOUR Nominations

This is your chance to nominate a great athlete or local legend for the BT Action Woman of the Year Award.

Do you know a local sports woman who deserves to be recognised? Is there a professional athlete that has really inspired you and deserves more recognition? Give them the support they deserve and raise a flag for sportswomen everywhere by nominating them for the BT Action Woman of the Year Award.

The BT Action Woman of the Year Award has been set up to help encourage women’s sport, and celebrate the amazing achievements of female athletes.

Last years winner was none other than Double World Champion mountain biker Rachel Atherton, truly a superstar of the sport. But this award applies equally to the unsung grassroots performers who are making a difference, yet don’t get as much publicity as the big names out there.
