Today we continue our Who’s Who in 22 series by listing sporting stars, with ties to the Moreton Bay Region, who have achieved great things in 2022.
There’s Little League baseballers, weightlifters, footy players, a tennis ace and a Dolphin or two.
It comes in a year during which we had athletes compete in the World Swimming Championships and Commonwealth Games, golfer Cameron Smith cemented his place on the world stage, boxer Liam Wilson inched closer to a world title shot, the Warriors called the region home and the Dolphins prepared for their NRL debut.
It’s been a big year!
