Dennis Yeoman named Sports Administrator of the Year

9 November 2010

Former ASA Committee member Dennis Yeoman was named Sports Administrator of the Year at the 2010 Commonwealth Sports Awards in Birmingham.

Swimming Trust chairman Yeoman has been closely involved with swimming throughout his life, whether in the capacity of competitor, coach, team manager or administrator.

I'm proud to accept the award and share it with my fellow workers in sport, particularly those in swimming.

Having helped shape new administrative and competitive structures within the ASA, Yeoman led the staging and delivery of the aquatic events at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in 2002.

He continued to work with Commonwealth Games England as a Board Member and played a key role in the management and organisation of England’s participation at Delhi 2010.

“I’m delighted to receive this honour from the Commonwealth Games Federation,” said Yeoman.

“I feel I’m receiving it not just on behalf of swimming, but also the thousands of volunteers throughout the Commonwealth who all work tirelessly to develop their sports.

“Involvement in sport brings many joys, particularly the friendships which stretch far and wide – none more so than getting involved with the Commonwealth Games.

“I’m proud to accept the award and share it with all my fellow workers in sport, particularly those in swimming and in the Commonwealth.”
