Georges St. Pierre named ‘Canadian Athlete of the Year’ 2008

Quote:
“It’s an honour for me to have this award and being the first MMA guy to receive something like this. I want to congratulate the other nominees because they have done an incredible job in their respective sports, making this an even more special honour…. I want to thank everybody for their support and voting for me — I want to be a good Canadian ambassador for the sport and represent MMA well.”

UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre responds to being named the 2008 Canadian Athlete of the Year by SportsNet.ca voters in a week-long competition, defeating hockey player Jarome Iginla, Paralympian Chantal Petitclerc, tennis player Daniel Nestor and baseball player Justin Morneau. “Rush” received a resounding 89 percent of the votes. He will defend his 170-pound title at UFC 94: “St. Pierre vs. Penn 2″ on January 31.

GSP deserves it. This could give UFC more exposure in Canada, even though I'm not sure how well it does in canada in the first place.

Check my sig.. he's my boy!

The UFC's doing pretty well in Canada actually, from Dana's words (..) there are about 1 million MMA fans in Canada. Strong fan base.

His victory can no doubt be attributed to my thread

But good job GSP, looking forward to another good year for George after he beats BJ!

There is an actual award for Canadian Athlete of the year, and this isn't it. Sportsnet is just using mma to try and capture a younger audience, they've been failing hard forever. Watch the Score if your in Canada; avoid ESPN.ca and Rogers
