Ten sporting highlights from 2015 have been nominated for the Sporting Moment of the Year Award, the only category voted for by the public at the Halberg Awards.
The sporting moment award gives the New Zealand public the opportunity to choose the nation's most exciting, remarkable, or compelling sporting moment, game or series in 2015.
Basketball, cricket, rugby league, rugby, golf, and football all feature in the finalists list.
Final points clinchers that created some of the biggest sports highlights of the year are shortlisted including;
Ekene Ibekwe's last second shot to secure the ANBL championship for the Breakers, Beauden Barrett's Rugby World Cup final try and Grant Elliott's six on the second to last ball to put New Zealand through to the Cricket World Cup final.
Career milestones from Richie McCaw (most-capped test rugby player), Ross Taylor (scoring the highest test score ever by a visiting batsman in Australia) and Lydia Ko (becoming the youngest major winner ever at the Evian Championship) are also up for the public vote.
The Highlanders first Super Rugby Championship win, the Kiwis winning the ANZAC test for the first time in 17 years and the Football Ferns beating Brazil are also in contention.
Warrior Nathan Friend's impressive back-flip to set up a try against the Melbourne Storm rounds out the finalists list.
