Sports Personality Of The Year 2013


Recommended Posts

I see that the 10 contenders for this award have been announced.

 

Just in case anybody has missed it, the 10 nominees are:

 

Ben Ainslie

Ian Bell

Hannah Cockroft

Mo Farah

Chris Froome

Leigh Halfpenny

AP McCoy

Andy Murray

Christine Ohuruogu

Justin Rose

 

Quite a selection, so who do you think will win the award and who you like to win?

 

I'm going for Andy Murray to win, but I hope (as a Welshman) that Leigh Halfpenny wins after being THE player of the successful Lions tour in Australia.

Strange that Mark Webber didn't make the short list on his retirement from F.1.

 

A.P. McCoy would get my vote if I was voting, that is !

I presume that was a replica Trophy presented to Andy( no charisma) Murray last night.Because if not the result was known before the Telephone clientel wasted their hard earned voting.Shocked that Mo Farah was not in the TOP 3.He has acheived more in 2 years than any Brit has acheived in decades,Foster,Ovett,Coe,could not lace his spikes.

Very good points made Smudge, Mo is a fantastic example and role model for all British up and coming middle and long distance runners.

Because in my opinion it is a Top Result thicko.

So the fact that Murray couldn't even be bothered to travel to accept the prestigious award doesn't come into it then, I can't remember a recipient who wasn't present to receive the trophy in person

Nope. I'm certain there will have been others. 

 

The award is for what he's done during the year not whether the winner collects it in person dopy bollix.

What's wrong with giving it to someone like Laura Trott for example, what she has achieved in cycling at a tender age is amazing and is the perfect role model for youngsters

Also surprised the Mo Farah didn't get in the top 3

Worthiest winner but expected Mo and Froome in the top 3 with him

 

Surprised Halfpenny got 2nd as an individual

 

At least not a Giggs farce like 2009
