The Sportspedia World Sport Encomium (World Sport Awards) will recognize the “Best in Sport” each year in different categories, highlighting excellence and positive values.
- 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.
Due to the pandemic, The I Sportspedia World Sport Encomium will be held completely remotely.
