This is an award which is voted for by the players themselves and those who are chosen are rightly proud.

This year the awards went to Mohammad al-Masri of Jordan and Lauriane Célié of France. The awards were presented by the new champions, Wang to Lauriane and Jenny to Mohammad. For Lauriane, it was her first appearance at the World Cup, but Mohammad was with us for the seventh time.

The awards are named in memory of two great supporters of the World Cup. Jacky Felsenstein was a doyenne of the bowling scene in Belgium, and highly regarded by all. Barry James was a British journalist who covered the World Cup for Reuters and produced the World Cup Review for many, many years. The Jacky Felsenstein award goes to the Sportswoman and the Barry James award to the Sportsman.

Congratulations to both recipients!
