Cape Town - The 2011 South African Sports Awards, presented by Sport and Recreation South Africa, has seen one of the nominations for SA Sportswoman of the Year going to the Investec South Africa women's hockey team's goalscoring world record breaker, Pietie Coetzee.

During the Champions Challenge international tournament in Dublin, Ireland last month, the 32-year-old superstar striker broke Russian Natella Krasnikova's world record of 220 goals. Coetzee's record now stands at an incredible 225 goals in 227 Test matches.

The awards ceremony takes place at Sun City on August 19 and 20.

Silver Malele is one of the other hockey personalities to be nominated.

Malele runs a community-based hockey club called Silver Stars in Diepsloot and he is a nominee in the Sport Volunteer of the Year category.

Nominated for the Sports Administrator of the Year is Pat Smith of Amathole Hockey.

The East London-based province is under Smith's management and her success also has a strong development component to it.

Finally, the SA Hockey Association has been nominated for the Sports Federation of the Year award.
