The Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame looked back at Nova Scotia's rich sport heritage this year and named, in order, the Top 15 athletes in Nova Scotia sport history. A panel of sport-knowledgeable people pared a very long list down to 25 athletes. Then we turned to YOU, the public, and asked you to be a member of our Top 15 ranking committee. We received hundreds of responses to the public survey. Those responses were tallied and counted as one of 13 votes when our Top 15 committee met to rank the Top 15 athletes out of this list of 25.

                  

We thank you for your input and are very excited to reveal the Top 15 athletes, ranked in order, starting September 11. On Monday, September 11, we will announce #15 on the CBC evening news. Tune into CBC every week after that for another announcement until we have revealed all 15 athletes -- ending with #1 on Monday, December 18.
