Meanwhile, Belfast City Council has also launched its annual ‘Find A Sports Star’ programme, which aims to identify the potential elite athletes – and possible Sports Awards winners – of the future. Now in its second year, this initiative is supported by GLL and delivered in partnership with Commonwealth Games NI.
