Christine Sinclair continued her run yesterday as the serial female winner of the BMO Canadian Player of the Year award.

The Portland Thorns FC captain was selected in an equally shared vote by Canadian media and Canadian coaches and clubs. The 2013 honour is her 10th in a row and 11th overall.

In 2013, Sinclair led the Portland Thorns to the NWSL championship. She earned NWSL Player of the Month honours in April. The 30-year-old captain netted eight goals in 20 matches.

At the international level, Sinclair participated in her 14th season with Canada. Most recently she made her 200th career appearance on Dec. 12 and the stellar striker earned player-of-the-match honours in October after a 3-0 win over Korea Republic.

Sinclair was again a finalist for the FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year award in 2013. She was also honoured on Canada’s Walk of Fame.
