The Awards celebrate the greatest sporting achievements across all sports and there are categories for individuals as well as teams.

In addition to celebrating sporting excellence, the Awards provide a global platform for supporting the Laureus Sport for Good movement, by showcasing the incredible work done to transform young lives around the world.
