Sports Commission to host awards

MASERU-The Lesotho Sport and Recreation Commission (LSRC) has announced it will host a third edition of its Lesotho Annual Sports Awards (LASA).
The awards are meant to recognise the best performing athletes in the country and this year they will be held on April 6 at the Manthabiseng Convention Centre Auditorium.

The LASA awards began in 2017 and evolved through a need to “recognise and celebrate sport development and the excellence of those involved in sports pushing the bounds of creative administration, meticulous umpiring and refereeing.”

The awards also recognize the role played by the media in reporting and contributing to the growth and recognition of sports personalities. The LSRC said it is dedicated to furthering creative development and excellence in sport. This year, in order to ensure fairness, the LRSC has broken the school sport awards section into three categories.

“LSRC administers nineteen distinguished award categories with the goal of raising awareness and importance of sport to our nation to go beyond the ordinary. For fairness purpose, there are changes made in this year’s edition. School Sport has been broken down into three categories, namely; Primary, Secondary and tertiary. There shall not be a sport program or show category. Sport journalist category shall not be voted for due to lack of interaction as per our experience for the past two years. LASA stands apart by offering a true competitive environment where nominations are judged with great precision and decency,” LASA said in a statement released on Wednesday.

Nominations for the award categories must be submitted by Friday February 15. On March 5 the finalists will be announced to the media and public.

Award categories:

  •  Junior Female and Male Sportsperson of the year
  •  Sportsman/woman of the year
  • Sportsman/woman of the year with Disability
