UK: Alec Mudimu nominated for Sports Person of the Year

By Agencies


ALEC MUDIMU’S whirlwind year has continued with a nomination for Zimbabwe Young Achievers Sports Person of the Year.

Signed by Welsh premiership side Cefn Druids ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, Mudimu has risen to prominence under Huw Griffiths’ tutelage at The Rock.

The athletic midfielder’s Welsh Premier League performances earned him international recognition with Zimbabwe, who he helped lead to COSAFA Cup glory in March.

Since then, Mudimu has featured in Zimbabwe’s impressive 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifying, Sunday Chidzambwa’s team leading Group G with two games remaining.

And Mudimu’s performances, in an unfamiliar central defensive role, have earned him recognition away from the field of play.

On his nomination for the award, which is part of an action packed evening in Coventry on December 22, Mudimu tweeted: “Amazing feeling to receive news on being nominated to be sports person of the year.

“Hope I can bring this one home. Thanks to everyone who’s voted and everyone who will vote. Thank you.”
