Sinclair wins Canadian women's soccer player of year

Christine Sinclair, #12, scored 13 goals in 22 games for the Canadian National Team in 2008.
Forward Christine Sinclair was named the Canadian women's soccer player of the year for 2008 on Thursday. Sinclair, from Burnaby, B.C., is considered one of the top players in the world.
Sinclair led the national team to victory at the Cyprus Cup tournament in March, and to a second-place finish at the Peace Queen Cup in August. She also recorded her seventh career hat trick in 2008, a Canadian record. Sinclair is Canada's all-time leading scorer with 95 goals, and sits seven games shy of tying Andrea Neil's record of 132 national team appearances.
