Congratulations to Sarah Goulden for being nominated for  the Sports Wales prestigious national coach of the year title for 2012.

After sifting through a record number of entries, a panel of judges – which included representatives of sports governing bodies, young people, sports coach UK, Disability Sport Wales and Sport Wales – have managed to whittle down the nominations and find their favourites.

Chair of Sport Wales, Professor Laura McAllister said: “We had a record number of entries to our awards this year and I know the panel found it difficult to create the shortlists, which is testament to the quality of all nominees.

 “But we have an outstanding group of finalists who are a credit to their fellow coaches and volunteers. Every year I am humbled by the dedication of these women and men to sport in Wales and I’m looking forward to hearing more about their inspirational work.”

The winners will be announced in a ceremony at the Sport Wales National Centre, Cardiff, on Wednesday 14th November 2012.

Good Luck Sarah
