To acknowledge extraordinary sporting achievements and performances that capture the hearts of the nation, The Sport Australia Hall of Fame introduced the 'Spirit of Sport' Award in 2005. This award is not intended to be given annually but to be granted, at the Board's discretion, for a performance that is very special and destined to be part of Australian sporting history.
