THE Midlands District Academy of Sport (MDAS) held their annual sports awards and gala dinner on Friday, November 23 at the Wanderers Sporting Facility. There was representatives from various sporting codes all joining in to celebrate a night of reflection on the various achievements made by their athletes throughout the year.

Programme director for the night and director of MDAS, Vincent Madoda, highlighted the importance of the MDAS throughout the Midlands, stating that athletes who excel in their respective fields need their support in nurturing these athletes and enhancing their skill through scientific methods.

“Our goal is to develop podium athletes, meaning athletes who will represent South Africa internationally and win. We know that in order for our athletes to go on and excel they need the best nutrition and scientific training,” said Madoda.

Madoda stated that the MDAS, which is currently without a high performance centre, desperately needed one and added that it is their long-term goal to build one here in Pietermaritzburg.

Various teams and athletes were honoured on the night by being presented with trophies for their heroic and brilliant athletic displays throughout the year.
