Thornhill’s Milos Raonic has been named the Canadian Press male athlete of the year.
The tennis star captured 45 percent of votes cast by Canada’s sports editors and broadcasters to win the Lionel Conacher Award.
Raonic, who won two tournaments this year, led Canada’s Davis Cup team to new heights, and reached the top ten in world singles rankings.
The female athlete of the year will be announced Friday, and the team of the year will be announced Saturday.
