Breakthrough of the Year Award Odds - Laureus World Sport Awards

The latest iteration of the Laureus World Sport Awards for this year will be held on Sunday 24th April, with the ceremony set to commence in the evening around 8 pm.

The nominees for all categories were selected in February, and the winners will be revealed on Sunday, with the winners being picked by the 71 members of the Laureus World Sports Academy.

One category that many people always look forward to is the ‘Breakthrough of the Year award. It’s the chance to reward young, up-and-coming athletes for their breakthrough performances in the world of sports throughout the year. This year’s six nominees for the Breakthrough Award are all from different countries, who have participated in a range of different sports such as football, tennis and the world of athletics. Here are the six athletes who have been nominated…

Emma Raducanu Odds: 4/11

Teenage tennis star Emma Raducanu has been nominated for the award due to her sensational performances this year, the highlight being winning the US Open at the age of just 18, instantly propelling her to overnight stardom.

The teenager is the youngest player to claim a women’s major title since Maria Sharapova was 17 at Wimbledon in 2004, also becoming the first British woman to win a Grand Slam trophy since Virginia Wade at Wimbledon in 1977.

Ranked 338th in the world, she entered Wimbledon via a wildcard entry, reaching the fourth round in her first major tournament. Then at the US Open two months later, Raducanu became the first singles qualifier to win a Grand Slam title, beating Leylah Fernandez in the final without dropping a set in the tournament.

As a result of her US Open win, she reached a world ranking of 23, and is currently sits 12th in the world rankings.

Raducanu has a great chance of winning here, due to her age and the fact that the current Laureus Sportswoman of The Year is tennis star Naomi Osaka – could another female tennis player win a Laureus award again?

The odds of Emma Raducanu winning are at 4/11.

Ariane Titmus Odds: 10/3

Making her Olympics debut at just 20 years of age, Ariarne Titmus shocked all who were watching when she beat defending champion Katie Ledecky in not one, but two different events.

This was a stunning achievement, especially considering that these defeats were the only times that Ledecky had lost individual finals in her three Olympic Games. The Australian beat American Ledecky in the 200m and 400m race at the Tokyo Olympics, setting a new Olympic record of 1m 53.50s in the 200m race.

Titmus also earned her nomination due to other performances in Tokyo, earning a bronze medal in the 4x200m freestyle relay. She also won a silver medal in the 800m freestyle final, unlucky to not win as she finished just 1.26 seconds behind Ledecky. So with a haul of four medals at the Games, two of which were gold, it is clear to see why she has been nominated and why she may win - with the number of medals she won at her level of experience, she could very well win here.

The odds of Ariane Titmus winning are at 10/3.

Daniil Medvedev Odds: 6/1

Russian tennis player Daniil Medvedev won the men’s US Open tournament, defeating Serb Novak Djokovic in straight sets in the final to win his first-ever Grand Slam title, dropping only one set throughout the entire tournament in the process.

The stunning victory received widespread media attention due to the fact that Medvedev’s victory stopped Djokovic from achieving a calendar-year Grand Slam, stopping him from surpassing career rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal with the amount of career Grand Slam singles titles won.

Age 26, he is currently ranked #2 in the men’s world tennis rankings and the future looks bright for him, as with his result as runner-up at the 2019 US Open and the 2021 Australian Open shows his quality – in the coming years, he could cement himself as one of, if not the, best tennis player in the world.

The odds of Daniil Medvedev winning are at 6/1.

Yulimar Rojas Odds: 6/1

Yulimar Rojas shocked the world when she broke the triple jump world record which had stood since 1995.

At the Tokyo Olympic Games, the Venezuelan’s jump of 15.67 metres surpassed the 26-year record held by Ukraine’s Inessa Kravets (15.50m) by 0.17 metres. And as a result of that jump, she became the first Venezuelan woman to win an Olympic athletics gold medal.

What makes this record even more amazing is the fact that she had already secured a gold medal already due to her score from an earlier jump that had broken the previous Olympic record of 15.39 from 2008 by Cameroon’s Francoise Mbango. But with her last jump attempt, she dramatically broke the long-standing record. She could likely win due to the stunning nature of her win in breaking her own record and the fact that she is the only woman from her country to ever win a gold medal.

The odds of Yulimar Rojas winning are at 6/1.

Neeraj Chopra Odds: 8/1

Despite having a population of over 1 billion, India has never produced many successful sporting figures or teams. However, due to his performance at the recent Olympics, Neeraj Chopra is now one of only two Indians to have won Olympic gold, and the first and only Indian winner of an Olympics gold medal in athletics, which he won for the javelin event. And with this nomination, he is only the third Indian athlete to be nominated for a Laureus Award after cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and wrestler Vinesh Phogat.

The 24-year-old making his Olympic debut at the age of 23, won his gold medal with a throw of 87.58 metres in what was his second throw. As a result of his Tokyo performance, Chopra became the 2nd-ranked athlete in the men’s javelin throw internationally. His medal helped his country on their way to a total haul of seven medals at that Olympics competition, surpassing India’s previous best performance of six medals won in 2012.

The odds of Neeraj Chopra winning are at 8/1.

Pedri Odds: 12/1

Spanish footballer Pedri, who plays as a midfielder for FC Barcelona, has also been nominated for this year’s Breakthrough Award. The 19-year-old is considered to be one of the best young players in the world, with some of his best attributes being his vision, passing and playmaking abilities.

The midfielder played over 50 games for Barcelona in 2020-2021 and appeared in every Spain game as they reached the European Championship semi-finals, also being included in the Team of The Tournament and being named Young Player of The Tournament.

He also played at least 70 minutes every game in Spain’s Olympics football campaign, playing in all six games as they lost in the final 2-1 to Brazil. The midfielder completed 90 minutes twice, and over 100 minutes twice (due to extra time) in these six games. Playing two different summer tournaments is bad for a player, but the fact that Pedri was able to complete it is a testament to his fitness levels and determination.

Only Lionel Messi has previously won a Laureus award when he won the 2020 Sportsman of The Year Award. Could Pedri do something highly unlikely and become another footballer to win a Laureus Award, an award that footballers rarely ever win?

The odds of Pedri winning are at 12/1.
