Jason holds top award
IN AN UNEXPECTED CHOICE, West Indies cricket captain Jason Holder was on Saturday night crowned as the 2015 recipient of the National Sports Council’s Sports Personality of the Year.
The announcement was made before a packed Frank Worrell Hall amidst the shrieks of jubilation from his mother Denise Holder and other supporters in the audience.
Holder was also named as the Senior Outstanding Sportsperson (male) while West Indies chairman of selectors Clive Lloyd looked on.
Holder is currently in Trinidad and Tobago representing the Barbados Pride in the NAGICO Super 50. He told NATIONSPORT in a telephone interview yesterday that he was extremely pleased to know that all the hard work has paid off.
