Bronwyn Kay Agency Sporting Excellence Awards Video Launch

After nearly two years of postponements due to COVID, the Bronwyn Kay Agency Sporting Excellence Awards finally went ahead last Friday and Saturday.  

The Awards were split between two days of filming at Rangāi Studio with Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti Chief Executive Stefan Pishief as Master of Ceremony.  

“The significant disruptions caused by COVID required us to find a new way to celebrate the amazing achievements of so many of our athletes, teams, officials, and community champions, and we’re really pleased we’ve been able to do so with this online format and the support of our sponsors. It was great to see our finalists and winners finally get the recognition that they so richly deserve.” said Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti Chief Executive Stefan Pishief. 

The 2022 Tairāwhiti Rising Legends squad, award winners, sponsors and supporters were split into small groups to be part of the production and accept their awards under Red Setting guidelines. Those who could not make it to the filming were still able to be part of the awards with a pre-recorded video displayed. 

“The production of the Sports Awards has been highly anticipated.” said Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti Event Lead, Debbie Hutchings. “The new format allows us to push the reach far beyond the traditional awards. It not only gives our local sporting community the opportunity to view the awards, but it can be shared globally to friends and family to celebrate the finalists and winners’ achievements.” 

Naming Sponsor, Bronwyn Kay Agency, announced the overall 2019-2021 Sportsperson Award recipient to Tayler Reid for Triathlon. 

“We were impressed with the calibre of sportspersons and proud of their achievements,” said Bronwyn Kay. “We were also super impressed and very happy with the format of the awards. Thank you for making the event extremely comfortable.” 

Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti would once again like to thank all their sponsors for their continued support and patience to make this event happen.
