Only one week to go for Victor: Laureus World Sports Award
Who is Kelly Slater? Who is Shaun White? Keep your fingers crossed for NorthSails teamrider and Wave World Champion Victor Fernandez, who is Laureus World Sports Award nominee!!!
This is what the Laureus commission says about his nomination:
"Spanish windsurfer Victor Fernandez won the 2010 PWA Wave Tour champion and led the ranking during the whole season, winning the PWA Pozo Grand Prix, in July, for the fourth time in a row and also finished second at the KIA World Cup in Denmark after a spectacular showdown.
His title is the result of a lifetime of hard work. He began windsurfing at the age of five and did his first forward loop at 11 years of age. Over the last five years he has won more world Cups than any other top rider and finished twice as Vice World Champion by the closest of margins.
A professional, hard working and super talented windsurfer, but also one of the most popular characters on the PWA World Tour, Fernandez is tipped to celebrate many more victories and titles in the future."
The prestigious Laureus World Sports Awards celebrate the top sporting achievements each year, so stay tuned...
