KUALA LUMPUR, August 25, 2019 - AIPS Asia, the Asian chapter of the International Sports Press Association (AIPS), will hold the inaugural edition of its “Awards for Asia” on the 27th August 2019 at Sunway Resort Hotel, Selangor.

“Awards for Asia” is an awards ceremony aimed at giving recognition to the best athletes and sports teams in the region. It is the first of its kind, and nominees are submitted by AIPS Asia member associations.

“There are four categories namely Best Male/Female athletes and Best Male/Female sports teams,” said Ahmad Khawari Isa, Chairman of the AIPS Asia Awards Committee. “However, we are looking to expand the categories for subsequent editions.”
