Central Gauteng Athletics home of Champions

Closing the year with great success stories to tell through the 2015 Central Gauteng Athletics Awards were held on Saturday, 28 November 2015 at Monte Casino. An event dedicated to celebrating CGA athletes administrator who have perform to the utmost best both nationally and internationally.

A Night of glam that got athletes out of their running short into the formally elegant theme of the night as Vaylen Kirtley  presented them to the stage as per their category.  President of CGA James Moloi officially opened the ceremony followed by President of ASA Aleck Skhosana who had a mouth full to say about the performance of the province and thanking CGA for always coming out of the top even as the largest athletics province in South Africa. MMC Vondo of City of Joburg delivered the Key Note Address also expressing his pride on the level of improvement of this event.

Great performances by Vincent Bones, Jojo and the Soulfonique band and our very own top athlete Cornalia Joubert who proved that her talent goes beyond just athletics.

Congratulations to the following category winners;
