Laureus World Sports Awards SHANGHAI 2015
Since its inception in 2000, the annual Awards Ceremony celebrates the most remarkable men and women from the world of sport along with the greatest achievements fans have admired throughout the year.
The Awards Ceremony consists of 7 categories with the potential for additional discretionary Awards given. Each winner receives the Laureus Statuette, crafted by Cartier, with its representation of the striving human form against an engraved representation of the continents.
Though the Laureus World Sports Awards brings a high profile focus onto the very best of professional sport, it is also those at the grassroots that benefit. Proceeds from the Awards directly benefit and underpin the work of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation which supports over 150 community projects around the world.
These projects have already helped improve the lives of millions of young people through the use of sport.
Each year stars from the music, film, television and fashion industries join sports stars for this truly global event that is watched by a television audience of hundreds of millions of people, on some of the world’s top networks.
