recipients for praise.

Mothersill, 32, said: “I feel
really honoured to be included with a lot of prestigious ladies. I think it’s a

that we’re being recognised.

“One of the benefits sports has

know that I tried and I’m satisfied with that.

“Even if it’s not sport as a
career, youngsters have to know what they want and be prepared to make the
personal sacrifice.”
