The TuksSport Hall of Fame comprises three categories, each acknowledging the involvement and outstanding sporting performances of representatives of the University of Pretoria, namely for national representation, exceptional services to sport at the University, and exceptional achievements in sport. Since the inception of the TuksSport Hall of Fame in 2000, the University of Pretoria has inducted 172 sportsmen and sportswomen, and has presented 36 Special Awards until 2008. This article focuses on each of the TuksAthletics Club Special Award recipients inducted into the TuksSport Hall of Fame from 2000 to 2008. Twelve Tuks Athletics Club representatives have received Special Awards while a further 36 representatives have been inducted. The purpose of this study was to document the outstanding achievements of the TuksAthletics Club Special Award recipients, and to reflect on their career performances which resulted in their induction. As this study was sport-history orientated, the historic method was applied. Preference was thus given to primary sources of information. These sources included interviews with people involved in the TuksSport Hall of Fame, and the interpretation of reports. Secondary sources of information included University publications, books, articles, and newspapers. The TuksSport Hall of Fame Special Awards acknowledge only the very best Tuks sports stars and personalities. Tuks Athletics Club has nurtured and developed many of these inductees, each of whom have contributed to the University of Pretoria and the community at large.
