2015 SASI Awards
20 Nov 2015
Congratulations to all of the winners at the 25th addition of the SASI Awards dinner held at the Hilton Adelaide on 19 November 2015. The evening strongly featured Cycling who took out 4 of the major awards including Program of the Year and dual world champion Annette Edmondson winning the Female Athlete of the Year.
Athletics had an outstanding night with athletes Brayden Davidson, Athlete with a Disability of the Year, and Jared Tallent, Male Athlete of the Year, both winning awards. Not only did the well spoken Brayden beat a world class field of athletes for his award, he also taught us a thing or two about Greek and Roman mythology. Unfortunately Jared was unable to collect his award as he was in Canberra for a training camp while undertaking a nutrition study.
Swimmer Kyle Chalmers and his coach Shelly Jarrett also faired well picking up the Junior Male Athlete of the Year and Coach of the Year awards respectively.
Another highlight from the evening was the insight gained into Rohan Dennis' rise from the SASI Talent ID program to becoming one of the premier road cyclists on the international stage.
Thank you to the 240 plus who attended the evening. The full list of winners are below.
