The Laureus World Sports Academy recognised the Spanish Basketball Federation with the Laureus Academy Exceptional Achievement Award, an Award which has only ever been granted four times. Spanish basketball is enjoying unmatched success, with the Men’s team winning the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China, and being hotly tipped to succeed at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games later this year. The Spanish Women’s Basketball Team have established themselves as the dominant force in European basketball having won three of the last four EuroBasket championships.
