Juliet Bawuah, Head of Sports at Media General, has won the African Woman in Sport award at this year’s GSport Awards.
She picked up the prestigious award in South Africa where the ceremony was held in late August.
Her competitors for the award were South African footballer Ode Fulutudilu who plays for Bayana Bayana and Violet Jubane, a Zimbabwean football administrator.
“Honoured to have won the Imperial African Woman in Sport award at last night’s GSport Awards in South Africa. This is a win for all African women in sport putting in effort to achieve their set goals. Big thanks to the jury and fans who voted @gsport4girls #gsport16 #SheOwnsHerSuccess,” she wrote on Twitter.
The GSport Awards was founded in 2006 by South African Cricket Presenter Kass Naidoo to celebrate and promote African women in sport.
This year marked the award’s 16th edition.
