World Sport Encomium

Sportspedia World Sport Encomium

What?

The Sportspedia World Sport Encomium (World Sport Awards) will recognize the “Best in Sport” each year in different categories, highlighting excellence and positive values.

Why?

  • To promote positive values and highlight -within a world of excessive information- the performances that deserve to be highlighted.
  • To keep a historic record of the performance that push boundaries in sport each year.
  • To have a space where the sport industry can peer-nominate and recognize the best sportspeople, with a truly global view – votes coming from world-class experts (athletes, journalists, executives, coaches, etc.) from over 80 sports and countries, something without precedent.

Where?

Due to the pandemic, The I Sportspedia World Sport Encomium will be held completely remotely.

When?

The I Sportspedia World Sport Encomium laureates will be announced in January, 2021, recognizing the Best in Sport for the Year 2020.
