Posted: Fri, 17 Aug 2012 17:00

National Governing Bodies of Sport such as England Netball along with physical activity projects including Active Together aim to identify the oldest sports people from across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland.

Participants will be recognised in 6 award categories;

  1. Athlete Award (Performance)
  2. Physical Activity Award (Participation)
  3. Volunteer Award
  4. Outstanding/ Lifetime Achievement Award
  5. Oldest Athlete Award
  6. Judge's Panel Special Award

In addition to identifying athletes from National Governing Bodies and physical activity programmes, Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport want to throw this open to the public!

In 2010 Alan Mellett was aged 76 at the time and was winner of the Athlete Award. Alan headed the British ranking lists for 2010 men aged 75 to 79 for the 100 and 200m and ranked third All Time for age group 200m. Do you believe yourself to be, or do you know of someone who could be the oldest athlete or participant in a particular sport or activity?
