DHAKA, September 22, 2008 Political unrest in Bangladesh has prompted the Bangladesh Sports Writers Association (BSWA) to postpone its annual awards ceremony until October.

The BSWA will present its 2007 awards to players and sports personalities including Sakib al Hasan (Cricket), Ziaur Rahman (Kabadi), Shafiqur Rahman Munna (Organiser), Abdus Sattar (Special Achievement in Sports), Rajshai Zilla Sports Council (Active Association), United Insurance Company (Sponsor), Abdullah al Rakib (Chess, Player of the Year, S A Mohsin Trophy).

BSWA was however able to conduct the presentation of its first ever Best Sports Writer of the Year award last week.

Named after the late BSWA president, the Ataul Haque Mallick, the Best Writer of the Year 2007 award was given to investigative journalist Masud Alam of the leading Bangla daily Prothom Alo.

President of the Bangladesh Football Federation Kazi Md. Salauddin presented the award at a ceremony held at the Gymnasium of the National Sports Council on September 18 in front of more than 300 guests including players, sports administrators, official and BSWA patrons.
