A Message from Our Governor
Spencer J. Cox
Sport resonates across our state, from parks and playing fields to ski trails and the largest stadiums and loudest arenas. There’s nothing quite like sport to bring people together as a community as we participate with friends or cheer on our sport heroes.
This April, at the 11th annual Governor’s State of Sport Awards, we look forward to honoring excellence on the field of play across the broad spectrum of sport in our state. We will also welcome back 2002 gold medalist Apolo Anton Ohno, the most decorated American in the Winter Olympics.
I look forward to hosting this terrific event as we honor excellence in sport in 2022, and showcase major events, teams, athletes, coaches, special guests and others who have all contributed to Utah's incredible sports landscape as we celebrate Utah as the State of Sport.
