The presentation takes place annually to celebrate achieving personalities and businesses in the South African sports industry.On Thursday, Erasmus was presented with the Leadership in Sport Business Award, while Kolisi was honoured with the Sport Industry Personality of the Year accolade.Francois Pienaar, the 1995 Springbok RWC-winning captain, presented Erasmus with his award, who described the tribute as both a big surprise and a great honour.‘I appreciate the award and the acknowledgement and I want to say thanks to everyone involved in staging the awards,’ Erasmus said, before going on to thank the Springboks players, management staff and SA Rugby personnel who are working with the Springboks.The Springboks have not been in action at all this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and Pienaar asked Erasmus what was in store for 2021.Our planning is in place and we are looking good for next year’s British & Irish Lions tour. Our big challenge at the moment is that we want to transform that (World Cup-winning) happiness into real hope and to do that we have to keep on winning as a team.Kolisi received his award from last year’s winner, Annelee Murray, who is the long-serving Springbok PR Manager.‘This award is really a team award, an acknowledgement of the good work done by everyone involved with the Springboks, from the coaches and players to the medical staff and the rest of the management,’ Kolisi said.Asked about the prospects of facing the British & Irish Lions next year in the Springbok jersey, the Bok captained said: ‘We are all very excited about the tour and we want to prepare as hard as we can to be ready for what promised to be a fantastic Test series.’According to the organisers of the awards, 2020 may have been a year to forget for the South African sports industry, but it was still preceded by some ground-breaking innovation and creativity towards the end of 2019, and the response to the COVID-19 crisis has been nothing short of inspiring.Michael Johnson, the former multiple Olympic gold medallist and 200m and 400m world record holder, delivered the keynote address.Photo: EPA/STR Published on November 26, 2020 Erasmus and Kolisi scoop top Sport Industry Awards Post by SA Rugby magazine ‘ From the magazine: Jano Vermaak names his Perfect XVFormer Springbok, Bulls, Lions and Stormers scrumhalf Jano Vermaak names a team of the best he played alongside and against.SA Rugby MagUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?
