MANSFIELD’S international cyclist, Simon Gerrans, has taken out yet another sporting award.
He was awarded Victorian Male Athlete of the Year for his outstanding year on the bike, having also won the Governor’s Award for Victorian Sportsperson of the Year in 2014.
He was unable to attend the awards last week, so Mansfield resident Steve Ward accepted the award on his behalf.
“What an honor to be named Victorian Male Athlete of the Year by the Victorian Sports Industry,” Gerrans said.
“Congratulations to all the nominees and award recipients.
“A big thanks to my mate and high school PE teacher Steve Ward for collecting the award on my behalf,” he added.
