You will probably hold your breath for a moment, you’ll definitely get goosebumps and there is a chance that you’ll even shed a tear or two: for the first time ever sports fans can be part of the Laureus World Sports Awards and vote in a global online poll for a newly created Award. The new Laureus Best Sporting Moment of the Year Award identifies the sporting moment, which has most resonance with sports fans around the world.
The six nominated moments, selected by the sporting legends of the Laureus World Sports Academy, look beyond the scoreboard or podium, they symbolise the true values of sport and bring to life the message that sport has the power to change the world.
