Which is the highest award for sports in worldwide?
Is there anything for separate sports (like Cricket)?
Or anything like worldwide award?

  • Why not consider the Olympics as such?

    @Saariko - They do not include all sports.

    You seem to have two questions here. "Which is the highest award for sports worldwide?" and "Which is the highest award in individual sports?" Correct me if I'm wrong.

The Laureus World Sports Awards are awarded annually to sportspeople who have been outstanding during the previous year. The awards are given globally.

If we talk about cricket, awards given by ICC (i.e. ICC Awards) are the highest awards for cricket. Also Wisden Cricketers of the Year is also considered one of highest awards.
