The 2019 Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco.
The Laureus World Sports Awards returned to Monaco on Monday 18 February 2019, where the cream of global sport – past, present and future - gathered to honour the greatest sporting achievements of 2018 and celebrate the power of sport to change the world.
Sport’s premier global awards ceremony celebrated the best of 2018 across eight individual and team categories, with the winners collecting a prized Laureus Statuette.
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.
At the inaugural Laureus World Sports Awards in 2000, Nelson Mandela’s declared that, “Sport has the power to change the world”. Since that moment, thanks to the support of its partners, Academy Members and Ambassadors, Laureus Sport for Good now supports over 160 projects in more than 40 countries, helping to change young lives for the better. Each year, one example of this work is recognised, through the prestigious Laureus Sport for Good Award.
Sports fans around the world also got to play their part by voting for the Laureus Sporting Moment of the Year Award, which highlights the power of sport to inspire change and bring people together.
