Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Rasheed Broadbell were recently named National Sportswoman and Sportsman of the year.
They received the coveted titles at the 2022 RJRGLEANER Sports Foundation national awards on Friday night.
The Gala Awards took place at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel.
This is the fifth time Fraser-Pryce has been named Sportswoman of the Year.
Fraser-Pryce had a phenomenal season during which she won her 5th world 100 meter title in a championship record of 10.67 seconds at the Continental Tour Gold meeting in Nairobi.
She also captured the Diamond League title for a 5th time.
Remarkably, the 36-year-old registered seven sub-10.70 second times throughout 2022 which included a world-leading time of 10.62 seconds resulting in her being shortlisted as one of three finalists for the world athletics female athlete of the year award.
Meanwhile, Broadbell captured his first-ever sportsman of the year award after a breakout season which saw him win gold in the men’s 110m hurdles event at the Commonwealth Games Birmingham in a record equaling 13.08 seconds.
