ANGUSalive Sports Awards 2017

Precor Takes the Title Sponsor for ANGUSalive Sports Awards

Published: Wednesday 24 January 2018

ANGUSalive, the culture, sport and leisure trust for the county of Angus, is delighted to welcome title sponsor Precor to the ANGUSalive Sports Awards 2017.

Global fitness equipment specialist, Precor, in association with ANGUSalive's Sports Awards, will celebrate sporting success throughout Angus on Friday 16 March 2018 at the Reid Hall, Forfar. The evening recognises the hard work and sporting talents of athletes, teams, coaches and volunteers - many of whom have gone on to enjoy worldwide success, competing at Commonwealth and Olympic levels.

Sam Taylor, UK Marketing Manager, Precor, commented:

"Precor are thrilled to be part of the ANGUSalive Sports Awards 2017 as we join in the celebration of athletes who strive in their sporting passions. We look forward to meeting last year's winners, hearing about the challenges and elations of the 2017 shortlisted nominees and presenting the 2017 winner of the coveted Sports Personality of the Year Award."

Each year the awards have continued to raise the profile of sporting champions including those who have achieved individual successes such as last year's Sports Personality of the Year Catriona Steele, who continued to take her Taekwondo to the next level, bringing home to Angus two gold medals from the Taekwondo ITF World Cup in Budapest.

Catriona Steele, winner of the Sports Personality of the Year award 2016, commented:

"I thought the [2016] awards were an amazing night, being nominated alongside the other astounding athletes was a surprise, but winning Sports Personality of the Year was overwhelming for me. I never thought anything like that would happen to me it was a great privilege and I am very proud to be able to say I won - good luck to all the 2017 shortlisted nominees!"

Suzanne Steele, Marketing Officer, ANGUSalive commented:

"We are delighted to welcome Precor as the title sponsor for the ANGUSalive Sports Awards 2017 as we discover our 2017 Sports Personality of the Year. As a sponsor, Precor will help us to celebrate local sporting talent in this evening of celebration of their hard work and determination. As a charitable trust, every penny we make is re-invested back into the services we deliver across culture, sport and leisure in the county of Angus so without the support of Precor and our other sponsors; we would be unable to run this event. I'd like to further reach out to the business community and note that there are still opportunities to get involved, either to directly sponsor an award, provide arrival drinks or even a table gift for the 2017 awards - if you'd like to know more please get in touch via AASportsAwards@angusalive.scot or call 01307 492600."
