    The nominees of the Asian Sports Awards are:

    Asian Sportsman of the Year:

    Liu Xiang (Athletics, China)
    Ahn Hyun Soo (Short Track Speed Skating, Korea)
    Mohammad Yousuf (Cricket, Pakistan)

    He's just plain good.......and besides, I've never even heard of the other two nominees.

    Asian Sportswoman of the Year:


    Nicol Ann David (Squash, Malaysia)
    Paweena Thongsuk (Weightlifting, Thailand)
    Jin Sun-Yu (Short Track Speed Skating, Korea)

    She's good, a bit inconsistent this year, but managed to win 8 titles, that's more than KKK-TBH..................

    Asian Team of the Year (Men):

    Lee Ho-Suk, Ahn Hyun Soo, Seo Ho Jin, Song Suk Woo (Short Track Speed Skating, Korea)
    Fu Hai Feng and Cai Yun (Badminton, China)
    Daniel Lim, Heng Boon Hian and Aaron Kong (Bowling, Malaysia)

    I was a bit unsure about this category. The Chinese weren't at their best..........the Malaysians are pretty good, but not many titles either. I won't be surprised if either wins!

    Asian Team of the Year (Women):

    Nor Hashimah Ismail, Azlina Arshad, Nor Iryani Azmi (Lawn Bowls, Malaysia)
    Gao Ling and Huang Sui (Badminton, China)
    Korean National Handball Team (Handball, Korea)

    Gao Ling and Huang Sui definitely. Though I haven't seen Huang Sui on the circuit lately.

    Mohammed Yousuf scored massively for pakistan... breaking Sir Viv Richards record for most runs in test calender year... although his form is scratchy during the current series against India that just concluded...

    He should win provided there is no bias, he did an amazing feat and he averaged over 100 runs during the massive year.

    Not because i like KKK/TBH. But personally i think they should be nominated on the board instead of FU/Cai.. no offence to them. Reason simply because the Msian Pair was newly formed and manage to win few titles and at the same time climb up the ranks until they are currently ranked #1.. in Just one year. The rest of the pairs has been around for sometime compare to these 2 Msian boys.

    you're so right....CY/FHF haven't ben that outstanding at all this year....on the other hand...KKK/TBH had already won a few big tournaments after being paired together for a short while...

    You take these awards seriously? See how they spread the nominations across countries?

    It's also spread across different sports. I'm surprised Lawn Bowls was nominated when Msian Women's Bowling Team are Asia & World Champs.

    But Nicol David deserves to win, 1st Asian woman to be tops in squash. Just wish squash is Oly sports, then we have excellent chance of getting 1st OG Gold.

    they are world #1 FOR NOW..I think these awards go to players with CLASS and those who are able to inspire..kkk/tbh are not a good example..another reason y lin dan is not on there obviously..cuz he does hv his attitude problems here n there eventhough he is one of my favorites..when i think of kkk/tbh..all i can think of is all those gucci and prada sponsors..unlike Fu & Cai that inspire so many people in China..eventhough im in Canada..it is because of them i had a passion to take up badminton seriously now doing things in for this sport such as coaching, stringing and helping others to love the sport of badminton

    I'm not sure about other countries, but for Msia, TBH is an inspiration for young players in the sense he came from poor background (father had no $$$ to pay RM25/mth for training fees). TBH had to count every penny he spent in his junior days. Now he is still down to earth, humble.
    And in my personal opinion, mature for his age - I wasnt as mature at 20. In future, may be better player than KKK.

    KKK - has severe shortsightedness & was short in his teenaged years. Overcome that with speed on court. That is inspiration for those who are not tall and vision less than 20/20.

    On the other hand, to be nominated, an athlete or team need to have a couple of years of consistent results, KKK/TBH still new pairing. Nicol David has been World Champ 2 times before awarded this title.
