VOTE for September's most emotional sporting moment!

2017-09-05 12:58

Cape Town - Each month, from August to December, the public can select their favourite moment from a shortlist of six videos, chosen by the sporting legends of the Laureus World Sports Academy.

The five monthly winners will then go head-to-head in a final public vote, with the winner being announced at the 2018 Laureus Awards Ceremony.

The winner of the August’s competition was F1 driver Kimi Raikkonen who turned the tears of six-year-old Ferrari fan Thomas Danel into smiles at the Spanish Grand Prix.

Laureus Best Sporting Moments demonstrate qualities such as fair play, sportsmanship, drama and dedication, and look beyond the scoreboard or podium. They symbolise the true values of sport and bring to life the message that sport has the power to change the world.
