Celia makes it two in a row

SPORTSPERSON OF THE YEAR

This year was a standout for Celia Sullohern, with a career highlight of representing Australia at the Commonwealth Games an achievement that earned her the Sportsperson of the Year Award for the second year running.

While Ms Sullohern recorded a fifth-place finish in the women's 5000m track final, it was an act of sportsmanship during the 10,000m, where she and her fellow Australian teammates waited for the final competitor to cross the line that attracted international attention.

This is the second time in two years Ms Sullohern has claimed the Clarence Valley Sports Awards Senior Sportsperson of the Year award.
