Hanny Allston Named Tasmanian Female Athlete Of The Year

In the “Mercury” Tasmanian Sports Star Awards for 2006 that were presented last night in Hobart Hanny took out the major award for female athletes in Tasmania by being named the 2006 Tasmanian Female Athlete of the Year. In addition, she was also recognised as the 2006 Tasmanian Junior Female Athlete of the Year. Her running coach Max Cherry shared the Coach of the Year Award.

This is another well deserved recognition by the Tasmanian sporting community for Hanny as she was also named as the Tasmanian Institute of Sport Athlete of the Year for 2006 at their awards ceremony a couple of months back.
