Other nominees for the award were Nike Bent (alpine skiing), Sofia Mattsson (wrestling) and Britta Norgren (cross-country skiing).

Tre Kronor (Swedish national hockey team) got team of the year award, while Bengt-Åke Gustafsson, coach of Tre Kronor, got award for leader of the year.
Thank you, Teus.
