KL to host Laureus World Sports Awards, 26 March 2014
“I am delighted that the 2014 Awards is to be staged in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is an exciting development that Laureus is being held in South-East Asia for the first time, enabling the Laureus message to be extended to a new part of the world,” said the Awards chairman Edwin Moses.
The chairman also spoke about a tribute to the late Nelson Mandela, "Of course, this is a very emotional occasion as it is the first Awards since the death of our patron, the great Nelson Mandela, and I am sure with the support of everyone in Kuala Lumpur it will be a ceremony to remember where we can salute today’s sporting heroes and pay tribute to President Mandela."
