Keylor Navas Awarded Iberoamerican Community Trophy by Spanish King

MADRID – The ruling Spanish monarch presented on Thursday Real Madrid Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas, and 12 other winners, with the coveted Spanish National Awards of Sports.

The award ceremony, presided over by King Felipe VI, his wife Letizia, mother Sofia and father Juan Carlos, began by commemorating three Spanish mountain climbers; Adrian San Juan, Sergi Porteros and Gerard Borrull all of whom died Sunday while climbing the scenic Nevado Mateo peak in the Andes Mountain Range in Peru.

Following the commemoration, Navas was awarded the Iberoamerican Community Trophy by Felipe VI, hours after regaining his starting spot after Real Madrid’s 3-0 win in the first leg of the Spanish Cup round of 16.

The former Albacete and Levante goalkeeper, who became a Real Madrid player in 2014, joined Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli and Colombian cyclist Nairo Quintana who won the Iberoamerican Community prize in earlier years.

Karate martial artist Sandra Sanchez, meanwhile, won the best Spanish athlete award, after winning the Women’s World and European Kata Championships.

Heptathlete Maria Vicente, who claimed the World Juniors title, was honored as the best Spanish junior athlete.

Common Goal, a project launched by Manchester United attacking midfielder Juan Mata with the aim of collecting donations from fellow soccer players for charity, won the best gesture of sports nobility award.
