The Don Award
The Don Award was introduced by the Sport Australia Hall of Fame in 1998 and is awarded annually by the Sport Australia Hall of Fame Selection Committee to honour a current Australian athlete or team who, by their achievements and example in the last 12 months, have most inspired the nation.
The Don Award is named in recognition of inaugural Inductee Sir Donald Bradman AC and is considered Australian sport’s highest honour. Since its inception, The Don Award has been awarded 29 times.
Winners of The Don Award are not inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame however, once retired, they do become eligible for nomination.
