59th edition of Prensa Latina’s Sports Survey opens

Havana, Nov 30 (Prensa Latina) The 59th edition of Prensa Latina's Sports Survey opened on Thursday to choose the best athletes and teams from Latin America and the Caribbean in 2023.

Starting today, world media will be able to cast their votes in three categories: Best Male Athlete, Best Female Athlete and Best Team.

The deadline to submit the ballots will be December 21, and the results will be announced at a press conference at Prensa Latina’s headquarters one day later.

The media, in all its variants -radio, television, written press, new agencies, websites- will send their selections to, from where the general voting will be compiled.

All media included in Prensa Latina’s Sports Survey will vote on equal terms and will choose any athlete from Latin America and the Caribbean (even if they do not appear on the list with proposals).

It is worth noting that this survey was first held in 1964, and the first winner was the Cuban sprinter Enrique Figuerola.

Among men, the top winner is the mythical Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt (6), followed by the Cuban Prince of Heights, Javier Sotomayor (5), while among women the legendary Colombian jumper Caterine Ibargüen (5) is the holder of most titles. jg/abo/mgt/jcm/yas
