The finest sportsmen and women in the Army have been recognised at a glittering awards ceremony held in the historic Guildhall in the City of London. Recognition of Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth Games success was matched by awards for team of the year, officials, unsung heroes and rising stars, and a special lifetime achievement award.
General Sir Nicholas Carter, Chief of the General Staff, said: “Sport produces soldiers who build and lead teams by habit and reflex. It generates and maintains cohesion. It nurtures pride and that essential corollary - humility. It encourages leaders to think clearly, confidently and positively when under pressure. And fundamentally it feeds a winning culture and ethos that inspire hunger for success on the battlefield.”
