The nominees, location and date of this year’s Laureus World Sports Awards will be revealed tomorrow (April 16). The tenth edition of this internationally recognized sporting awards will be a tough one for the jurors considering that there were a lot of triumphs last year, most notably at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Only one player was confirmed as a nominee so far and he’s none other than World Heavyweight Champion Vitali Klitschko for the Laureus World Comeback Award.
“I am delighted that we were able to ascertain in time that Vitali had received enough votes from the world’s media to guarantee that he would be nominated so that we could announce it at his fight,” said Laureus Vice-Chairman and tennis legend Boris Becker.
“This is the category that always impresses me the most,” he added.
