HURRAY !!!!!! :P :D :lol: :P :D :lol:

Yao Ming was voted the WORLD NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR and thus received the 2003 Laureus World Sports Award.

The Laureus World Sports Award is the most prestigious awards in the world of sports, just like Oscar in the film industry.

This is surely a MUCH BIGGER ACHIEVEMENT than the NBA Rookie of the Year Award that Yao Ming so narrowly and unfairly lost to Amare Stoudemire !!!!


[color=darkblue][i]As expected he has easily beaten all the other nominees in this category Daniela Hantuchova, David Nalbandian, Wayne Rooney or Jochem Uytdehaage.

Here is the formal press release from Laureus:

Have a look at the magnificent Laureus Statuette to be received by Yao Ming as Laureus Newcomer of the Year !!! It is a beautiful sculpture dedicated to the spirit of sport, and depicts a silhouette of two athletes reaching out in victory, with the representation of the five continents below. It is sculpted from solid silver by Cartier.

CONGRATULATION TO YAO MING !!!!! :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

This video was pretaped in China and broadcasted during the Laureus World Sports Award Ceremony on May 21st (but the Laureus World NewComer of the Year Award was couriered to Yao Ming beforehand).

In the video, Yao Ming was humble and said that he appreciated the recognition, but the Award did not belong to him alone, and he wished to share the honor with his teammates and coaches and fans in China and in Houston."
