Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly will celebrate 12 months of sporting excellence and crown its annual Sport Star of the Year on Friday night.
A diverse list of nominees includes sportspeople with achievements in football, Ironman, equestrian, triathlon, aerobics and tennis.
Among the eight nominees is endurance athlete Kelly Miller. Miller finished as the best Australian in her age group at the Half Ironman World Championships in September, among other achievements.
Miller said she enjoyed the chance to reflect upon the last 12 months alongside her family, friends, and other sports stars from across the Wimmera.
"It's nice to be invited to go along with other athletes from the Wimmera to celebrate everyone's achievements," Miller said.
"It's definitely nice to stop, sit back and see how far we've come.

"It becomes a celebration of all the hard work you've put in, and all the countless hours of training. I'm looking forward to the night."
Miller was initially nominated for the sports star of the year award in May, after she achieved a personal best at an Ironman Australia event in Port Macquarie, and qualified for the Ironman World Championships.
Miller then completed a lifelong dream by competing at the World Championships in Kona, Hawaii in October.
"It's been a really exciting year. I've been really lucky to be able to travel all over the world with the sport," Miller said
"I'm really looking forward to Friday and hearing what everyone else has achieved throughout the year and having a celebration with family and friends."
Past winners of the sports star of the year award include Wheelchair Basketballer Jannik Blair, footballer Damien Skurrie, Cycling star Jason Niblett, and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Alethea Sedgman.
The 2019 winner was Horsham's teenage tenpin bowling star Sophie Martin.
