The 2022 SportWest Awards were held on Thursday 23 February at Optus Stadium.
2022 Giro d’Italia winner, Jai Hindley claimed his second WA Sport Star crown at the 2022 SportWest Awards.
Hindley went from strength to strength in 2022. In May, the 26-year-old became the first Australian to win the Giro d’Italia, creating a landmark moment in Australian sporting history. In doing so, Hindley joined Cadel Evans in the exclusive pantheon of Australians who have won one of cycling’s three-week-long Grand Tours. To cap of a stellar year, Hindley won the Sir Hubert Opperman Trophy for the Australian Cyclist of the Year.
