Outstanding sport personalities from Erongo nominated for awards

Outstanding sport personalities from the Erongo Region made the final list of nominees of the 18th edition of the Namibian Annual Sports Awards (NASA) that will take place tomorrow in Windhoek.

These three sport personalities are Dellano Muller (Kickboxing), Johanna Benson (Athletics) and Bradely Murere (Athletics), nominated for the Junior Sportsman of the Year, Sports-woman of the Year with a Disability and Junior Sportsman of the Year with a Disability.
Muller will compete with Magano Naseb and Ruano de Cuvallo, both from the Namibian School Sports Union for the prize. He however, is the only sport person guaranteed a prize, after the kickboxer was named the sole nominee for the community inspiration award for his dedication to helping the less privileged. Johanna Benson will be up against Lahya Ishitile and Sylvia Shivolo with Bradely Murere competing against Julien Rejive, all athletes from the Namibia National Paralympic committee. This year`s awards will combine both the athletic achievements from 1 October 2019 to 31 September, as it did not take place last year due to the lockdown.
The NASA is to celebrate the achievements of a remarkable group of people, who had to compete at various national and international arenas.
