For the Breakthrough Award, he was picked ahead of contenders such as tennis player Coco Gauff, swimmer Qin Haiyang, middle-distance runner Josh Kerr, and footballers Linda Caicedo, and Salma Paralluelo.

Additionally, the Laureus Awards 2024 saw tennis great Novak Djokovic and Spanish midfielder Aitana Bonmat­ win the World Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Award.

Meanwhile, the most successful gymnast of the World Championships, Simone Biles, won the World Comeback of the Year Award.

Furthermore, he is an eight-time Olympic champion, winning gold medals in the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m events, except for the 4x100m gold medal from Beijing Olympics 2008, which was stripped due to a positive drug test from team member Nesta Carter.
