This year all the youth and junior awards were presented at the BASC Annual Dinner. Most recipients took part in panels at the Saturday afternoon events which gave BASC members an insight into the views and ambitions of up-and-coming athletes.
Thrower George Evans was named the BASC Young Male Athlete of the Year.
The award is made for performances over the course of a season by a youth athlete (16-17 years old on 31 December in the year of competition). George won a bronze medal in the discus at the World Youth Championships with a throw of 60.22m. He went on to win silver at the Commonwealth Youth Games behind the world champion. In addition, George has dominated domestic U20 shot put competition this year.
