The Laureus World Sports Award will take place in Paris on May 8, 2023, and will welcome top athletes from around the world.

After two years of virtual presentations due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the award will return as an actual event.

One of the nominees for the Sportswoman of the Year award is Jamaican star sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, the current world champion in the 100 metres.

Other contenders for the award include American world champion and world record holder in the 400 metres hurdles, Sydney Mclaughlin, and American swimmer Katie Ledecky, who has a record 22 world gold medals to her name.


Among the athletes who will attend the event are Lionel Messi, the captain of Argentina’s World Cup-winning team, and his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Kylian Mbappé, who scored a hat-trick in the World Cup final.

The Sportsman of the Year award contenders include American basketball star Steph Curry, Sweden’s World and Olympic pole vault champion and world record holder Mondo Duplantis, and the Netherlands’ Formula One World champion Max Verstappen, who was the winner of the award last year.

Also present will be Rafael Nadal, who claimed his 14th French Open title in Paris last May, breaking the all-time record for the most men’s Grand Slam titles with 22.
