Australia's wheelchair rugby team has been shortlisted for Team of the Year at the inaugural Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) Sport Performance Awards (ASPAs) after winning the 2014 International Wheelchair Rugby Federation World Championship title in Odense, Denmark.
The Steelers defeated Canada in the final last August, becoming only the second country in history to hold the World Championship and Paralympic titles concurrently.
Also nominated for the award, due to be presented at the Melbourne Museum on February 11, is Australia's netball team, gold medallists at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and Australia's men's hockey team, winners of the World Cup, as well as the Commonwealth title.
