Gsport is an association that strives to recognise top sportswomen in our country and attempts to bring attention to these sports so that there may be more sponsorships and support from companies. Gsport was started and is still run by one of South Africa’s top sporting enthusiasts, Kass Naidoo and her husband Ryk Meiring.
At these awards people are honored in different categories. There is a Style Star of the year which went to Shashi Naidoo, Sportswoman of the Year which went to Pietie Coetzee, Sponsor of the Year went to Spar and every year they enter one lady into the gSport Hall of Fame.
