The nominations for the 2009 Isle of Man Sports Awards have been revealed.

Chairman of Isle of Man Sports Aid Gary Corkhill said: "The quality of the nominations reflects another exceptional year for Manx sport."

Last year Mark Cavendish was named sportsman of the year with snowboarder Zoe Gillings best sportswoman.

The award ceremony will be held at the Villa Marina in Douglas on Thursday, 8 April.

Corkhill continued: "We are very proud to have so many athletes making a name for themselves on the world stage.

"Equally the strength in depth and diversity of sports represented is very pleasing.

"We're particularly pleased with the quality of the under-21 women's category, which is very strong this year."

The guest speaker will be Dame Mary Peters who set the world record for the pentathlon on way to gold at the Munich Olympics in 1972.

There are nine categories in total, including Isle of Man ambassador, Under-21 sportsman and woman, disability sportsperson, club official, coach and best team.

There will also be a special lifetime achievement award and an outstanding achievement on the Isle of Man made on the night.
