Bolt, Fraser-Pryce shortlisted for Laureus award

Top Jamaican sprinters Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce are among the athletes in the running for the prestigious Laureus World Sports Awards 2013. Bolt and Fraser-Pryce have been shortlisted along with the world’s greatest Olympic and Paralympic stars. The list includes British lawn tennis player Andy Murray, Australian swimmer Michael Phelps and Serena Williams, the American lawn tennis star.

Bolt is aiming for his third Laureus World Sportsman of the Year Award after repeating his success in Beijing by winning gold medals in all three sprint events in London - 100m, 200m and the 4x100m relay. The nominations for the Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year Award are all dominated by the Olympics. Fraser-Pryce, the fastest woman on earth after successfully defending her 100m Olympic title, is in competition with Britain’s Jessica Ennis, who won the heptathlon gold in front of an ecstatic home crowd to fill in the list.
