Young is the most prolific monthly sports star winner

SPORTS STAR: Nominations are still open for the final two months of 2016 in the Daily News/Warwick Credit Union Sports Star of the Year awards.

Monthly junior winners receive a $50 Savings Account at Warwick Credit Union or a deposit in their WCU account and senior winners receive a $100 cheque from Warwick Credit Union.

Fewer than half the monthly winners down the years win a second award, which means up to 300 sports stars have been honoured in the first 24 years of the awards.

The most prolific monthly winner has been Nobby sportsman Angus Young who won monthly awards eight years in succession in athletics, curling and indoor bowls.

He has represented Australia in curling with the long-term hope of going to the Winter Olympics.

Young has also represented Australia in indoor bowls. His medal wins have included silver in singles at the nationals. Presentations will be made to each 2016 monthly winner at dinners early this year.
