The nominees are spread across four Sports disciplines ahead of the Virtual ceremony to be held this Monday, August 2.

These have been headlined by Athletics trio at the ongoing Tokyo Olympics of Joshua Cheptegei, Jacob Kiplimp and Winnie Nanyondo.

Chepetegei won silver while Jacob Kiplimo took bronze in the 10,000m.

Winnie Nanyondo missed out on the Women’s 800m final despite comfortably qualifying to the semis in earlier heats.

In Basketball, the nominees have been picked from the Silverbacks team that beat Morocco 77-65 on Thursday, July 8 to qualify for Afrobasket.

Arthur Kaluma who scored a team high 20 points on an historical night will be the favourite ahead of Eric Rwahire and Ishmail Wainright.

Adrian Kasiito whose best highlight came as Uganda beat Ghana where he scored 13 points (five conversations and one penalty) in Rugby Africa Cup at Kyadondo, headlines the nominees for the best Rugby player alongside two Lady Rugby Cranes stars – Captain Peace Lekuru and Faith Namugga

The Crew of Yassin Nasser and Ali Katumba will just show up to pick their award for best Rally Driver (crew) after going unopposed in their category.

The Moil-sponsored crew were the only team to represent Uganda at the World Rally Championship event in kenya last month.

The awards, an initiative of renown Sports Journalist Isaac Mukasa, are sponsored by leading betting firm Fortebet Uganda, Canaan Soda and Jude Colour Solutions Limited.
