DUSI KING IS PMB CAMPUS 2012 SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR

Winner of the 2012 Dusi Canoe Marathon and the Non-Stop Dusi, Andrew Birkett, is UKZN's Pietermaritzburg campus Sportsman of the Year.

The announcement was made at the 50th annual sports banquet held at the Victoria Country Club at which five full blues and 16 half blues were awarded.

Award-winners were selected by the University’s sports executive and sports officers.

The banquet featured a panel comprising former national and provincial sports representatives: South African rower Mr Doug Gouw, South African hockey player Ms Janet Edwards, Natal rugby player Mr Jimmy Mallett and South African soccer player Mr Steven Ngubane, who have each had a significant affiliation to the University through coaching, playing or administration. 

The sports personalities provided insightful stories of their experiences during their time at UKZN.

From 2013 onwards, UKZN campuses will have a combined event to honour and celebrate the achievements of the university's sportsmen and sportswomen.

Full blues were awarded to Darren Berriman (canoe polo); Andrew Birkett (canoeing), Robin James (hockey), Damian Kimfley (hockey) and Mick Gouweloos (squash).
