The 12th annual LA Sports Awards are coming soon and the Los Angeles Sports Council asked fans to help select the greatest moments in sports for 2016 in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. By voting here, fans ranked the year’s Top 10 sports moments.
Voting took place from Monday, January 9 through Sunday, January 29. The final rankings will be revealed on Monday, February 27 during a special dinner and show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The awards show will air multiple times on a tape delayed basis on Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket.
Awards also will be presented on February 27 to the Sportsman, Sportswoman and Coach of the Year (all selected separately) and a Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Peter Ueberroth. All LA Sports Awards winners will receive special Tiffany & Co. awards.
The Top 10 moments of 2016 were chosen and ranked based on a list of 15 moments nominated by our Media Panel. The online voting results will be combined with the vote of the media panel (50% each), to determine the exact ranking of the Top 10 moments. On February 27 each of those 10 moments will be counted down as we announce the “Greatest Moment of the Year." To view the 15 nominated moments, click here.
The concept of a moment is loosely defined. It can be a specific instant in time (such as a winning goal, hit or shot), an individual or team milestone, an upset victory, a remarkable game, a special event or a career achievement. Nominated moments must have taken place in the local area, or have involved a local athlete or team.
