Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane and captain Hlompho Kekana were among the winners at the Gauteng Sports Awards at SilverStar Casino in Krugersdorp on Sunday night.
Mosimane was named Coach of the Year, beating Golden Lions rugby tactician Johannes Nthooro Mongalo and Kelsey White of Central Gauteng Water Polo.
Kekana won the Sports Personality of the Year accolade ahead of Banyana Banyana star Janine van Wyk - who was denied the Sportwoman of the Year gong by Tanita Ramburuth Hurt - and athletes Luvo Manyonga and Sheldon Thomas.
Kekan missed out on the Sportman of the Year prize to rower Lawrence Brittian.
Sundowns were also crowned Sports Team of the Year, amid competition from the Lions and Wits Tang Soo Do (martial arts), following their CAF Champions League heroics last season.
