Lionel Messi ties Tiger Woods record to become the athlete with the MOST nominations (8) for the Laureus Best Male Sportsman of the Year Award.


The Laureus World Sports Award for Sportsman of the Year is an annual award honoring the achievements of individual men from the world of sports. It was first awarded in 2000 as one of the seven constituent awards presented during the Laureus World Sports Awards.[1] The awards are presented by the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, a global organisation involved in more than 150 charity projects supporting 500,000 young people.[3] The first ceremony was held on 25 May 2000 in Monte Carlo, at which Nelson Mandela gave the keynote speech.[4] As of 2020, a shortlist of six nominees for the award comes from a panel composed of the “world’s leading sports editors, writers and broadcasters”.[1] The Laureus World Sports Academy then selects the winner who is presented with a Laureus statuette, created by Cartier, at the annual awards ceremony held in various locations around the world.[5] The awards are considered highly prestigious and are frequently referred to as the sporting equivalent of the “Oscars“.[6][7][8] (Wikipedia.com)

The Minister of Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif, is not too happy with Ghana’s Amputee Football team, the Black Challenge. According to reports, the Minister has criticized the team for accepting donations from external sources without consulting his office first.

This criticism came after the team received a $10,000 donation from former President John Mahama, who is also a presidential hopeful for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), on July 12, 2024. The Minister’s main point of contention seems to be that the team should have first engaged with his office before accepting any external donations.

He stated, “When you come after the successes and there’s anything, the first point of contact is this office [MoYS]. “It’s not all doom and gloom for the team, though. They recently won the 2024 African Amputee Football Cup of Nations (AAFCON) in Egypt, successfully defending their title.

So, while there might be some political drama behind the scenes, the team’s on-field performance is something to be proud of! In the end, it’s a reminder that even in the world of sports, politics can sometimes play a role.
