About the Jerring Prize
The Jerring Prize is the only sports prize to be judged by the Swedish people, and is presented to the individual or team that has achieved the year's best performance in Swedish sport. The prize was instituted in 1979 by Radiosporten to commemorate the legendary radio journalist Sven Jerring, who died that year.
