They nominated Cristiano for Best Athlete of the Year Award
Despite the mountain of criticism that has spat over Cristiano Ronaldo in recent weeks, the Portuguese continues to gain recognition for his strong 2017 year. Real Madrid`s top scorer was nominated for the Oscar-winning Laureus in the Best Athlete category in the world. Competitors of the CR7 are the tennis giants Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, the F1 pilot Lewis Hamilton, the top Mato Farra and the winner of the Tour de France Chris Fruum. The prizes have been awarded since 1999, with no player ever awarded the prize. Last year, the award went to Usain Bolt. Real Madrid is among the candidates for the Team of the Year award. In this category, los Blancos is competing with France`s tennis team for Davis Cup, Basketball Golden State Warriors, New England Patriots, Formula One Formula One team and New Zealand sailing team.
It is curious that among the laureates is Barcelona`s football team in the category Return of the year because of the memorable turn over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. The awards ceremony is on February 27 in Monaco.
