Masters hockey player Ian Wright and Echuca go-karter Reece Sidebottom are December 2013's Sportstar nominees.GEORDIE COWAN January 16, 2014 6:14pm
Masters hockey player Ian Wright is the December senior Sportstar of the Year winner.
Wright was selected for the Australian over 70s team which will compete at the Grand Masters Hockey World Cup in 2014.
The versatile player earned his selection after performing well at the Australian Championships in 2013.
Wright had to overcome two broken ribs six weeks before the national tournament just to take part, so to then go on and earn selection in the national team was especially pleasing.
Echuca go-karter Reece Sidebottom was the December junior Sportstar of the Year winner.
The 13-year-old wrapped up the year in style when he claimed the junior national light class victory at the Victorian Closed Titles at Portland.
It was the second time he had won a closed title after being victorious in the rookies class two years ago.
The win means he is the best in Victoria in his class and complements the Victorian and South Australian open state titles he won in 2013.
