                The Greater Cleveland Sports Commission recognized amateur, collegiate and professional athletes’ achievements at the 12th annual Cleveland Sports Awards.

Benefit co-chairmen were Michael Gibbons, Carl Grassi and Dan Walsh. More than 1,200 fans of all ages crowding the reception in the Gold Room sought autographs from and pictures with notables such as Olympian gold-medalist boxer Nate Brooks and Harrison Dillard, the only man ever to win four golds in both sprints and high-hurdles.
