Laureus, known to help provide sports for underprivileged youth, has announced a Facebook app that allows members to recognize friends who’ve coached, played and leveraged sports in some area of their lives as a positive influence. The medal is best known from the Laureus World Sports Awards, which is held annually, celebrates the most influential men and women from the world of sport along with their achievements from the previous calendar year. Facebook friends can make use of the app by awarding a Facebook friend with a virtual Laureus Medal. Those who’ve vouched for their friends in the app are automatically entered into a drawing which includes prizes such as a trip to the Laureus World Sports Awards, Wladimir Klitschko’s signed boxing gloves as well as a tennis racket and shoes signed from legend Boris Becker.
