"National writer Eddie Pells garnered two awards in the annual writing contest for AP staffers judged by Associated Press Sports Editors at their winter meeting. "
"Pells won the Grimsley Award for outstanding body of work and also took best feature honors with a story on equestrian rider Boyd Martin, his horse Neville Bardors and their dreams of the London Olympics."
"His entry on Boyd Martin, a horseman who moved from Australia to the U.S. to further his Olympic dream, should be made into movie; it was that touching."
To revisit his story, you can read it in it's entirety HERE.
We're humbled that Boyd and Neville's story provided the inspiration for Eddie's work. Congratulations Eddie and thank you for honoring Boyd and Neville!
