2020 Athletics Ontario Awards Gala and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Athletics Ontario decided to cancel the 2020 awards gala and hall of fame induction ceremony scheduled for September 26th. The 2020 Hall of Fame inductees will be recognized at the 2021 event.
There were no formal awards given in 2020. Instead, we created a “year in review” video to commemorate all of the notable moments in 2020.

Athlete of the Year & All-Ontarians
Selected All-Ontarians represent the top athletes in their respective age, gender, and event disciplines. Unlike the traditional Athlete of the Year award, instead of selecting one winner, a “team” of athletes are to be named All-Ontarians for the year. Athlete of the Year Awards will be presented to the top Male and Female athlete in each age group (U14, U16, U18, U20, Open, Para, Masters).
All-Ontarians are selected based on their overall performance for the year and their participation and performance at National and International track meets. The 2019 All-Ontarians were announced (view the list here) and received their awards at the 2019 event. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there were no All-Ontarians named in 2020.
