VETERAN SPORTS ADMINISTRATOR Sir Austin Sealy has been bestowed with the insignia of knighthood by Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave.

Sir Austin was made a Knight Bachelor of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours.

His investiture ceremony was held at Government House  today.

It was attended by a gathering of family and friends, many of whom travelled from overseas.

Speaking to NATION NEWS at his Highgate Gardens, St Michael home where he and Lady Sealy hosted a celebratory luncheon for family and friends, Sir Austin said “The award specifically highlighted my involvement with sports administration and that has been a lifelong passion.  As long as I know myself I have been involved in some form of sports.” (GC)
