Enniskillen athlete Sian Hurst has received the ‘Athlete of the Year’ award from the IWWF Europe and Africa.
She is the first Irish athlete ever to win this award.

Sian was presented with the award in Unterageri, Switzerland where 24 countries were represented, including Ireland. Each Europe Africa Council elects their Confederation Athlete of the Year based on their performances at major events.
