Naomi Osaka Announced 2021 Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year

Tennis phenom Naomi Osaka just continues to dominate in all aspects of anything she is involved with!

Less than a week after announcing that the tennis champion has just expanded her investment portfolio with a partnership with health-driven fast-food chain sweetgreen, she was named as the 2021 Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year.

“It is an honour to once again be nominated for a Laureus Award by the world’s media. For me, this is special because Laureus sees the big picture—not just sport on the court or the pitch, but how it can help young people around the world, says Osaka.

It was also reported last week that Nike announced that Naomi Osaka’s Play Academy is expanding to Los Angeles and Haiti, while also collaborating with local sport-based organizations that are helping to encourage the next generation of girls who can enjoy play and engage in sports participation.

Late last month, Osaka launched her own skincare line, Kinló. The beauty line will focus on the needs of Blacks and People Of Color (POC).
