Default (For the Brits) Sports Personality of the Year

Making it on the back of last night to see what people are thinking. It's a few months away, and doesn't really mean anything, but after this summer of sport it may be the most stacked field they've ever had. (I'm assuming nobody does anything big for the rest of the year.)


Andy Murray - Wimbledon final, Olympic gold & silver medal, US Open winner. First British male grand slam winner since Fred Perry in 1936, likewise for a Wimbledon final, and the first man to win Olympic gold and the US Open back-to-back.

Bradley Wiggins - First ever British Tour de France winner, also won an Olympic gold medal for an overally tally of 7 medals at Olympic games.

Mo Farah - Gold medals at 5000m and 10000m. First ever British long distance Olympic champion.

Jessica Ennis - "Poster girl" of the Olympics. Wiped the floor with the competition to win the gold in the Heptathlon.

David Weir - Four Paralympic gold medals in the 5000m, 1500m, 800m and marathon. Adds to his 2 gold, a silver and bronze he won in Beijing.

Ellie Simmonds - "Face" of the Paralympics. Won 2 gold, a silver and a bronze in the pool. Only 17 years old.

Sir Chris Hoy - Added two more Olympic gold medals to become Britain's most successful Olympian ever with 6 gold medals (a silver). Also won a gold at the World Championships.

Laura Trott - Two Olympic gold medals in Team Pursuit and Omnium, plus two golds at the World Championships.

Rory McIlroy - Second youngest player to become world no. 1, won his second major (USPGA) by a record eight strokes. Ryder Cup still to come..

Jason Kenny - Two Olympic gold medals in the Team Sprint and Individual Sprint. Adds to his 1 gold and 1 silver from Beijing.

John Terry -






In 1997, Greg Rusedski won just by getting to the US Open final

Was thinking about this last night actually and it's got to be the hardest year to select a winner. Just a ridiculous year of achievements for Britain in sports.

Honestly, I can't select just one. Just can't.

Screw it. BIG MAN JOHN TERRY

I would put Sarah Storey up there as well, 4 Golds at the Paralympics, becoming Britain's most successful Paralympian with 22 medals including 11 golds

I just picked David Weir thinking it was the Everton player/coach. Fuck.

Since it isn't, Jessica Ennis.

Default Re: (For the Brits) Sports Personality of the Year

Wiggins IMO, saw someone list all the accomplishments he's achieved this year as well as the physical demands in winning The Tour de France and no-one comes close bar maybe Hoy or David Weir.

Ennis seems like a down to earth and terrific person..but as great as her achievements were in dominating at the Games and all the hype making her one of the forces of British sport I just don't think she can top Wiggins in terms of personal achievement.

Murray likewise played tremendously during and after Wimbledon and in any normal circumstances would have been a worthy winner, but I just don't think this incredible run the past 3 months can carry him above Wiggins.

That being said, Ennis, Weir or even Mo Farah wouldn't irk me if they won. However I do think it has to be Bradley Wiggins' year, screw it I'll post what someone else was saying earlier about him deserving it:

Quote:
everyone knows wiggins won the tour de france, which to me is an achievement far out stripping a 10,000m and 5000m race.

3 weeks riding a bike at least 30-40kph over a distance of nearly 3500km with massive high mountain passes to climb at on average 8-10% gradient and not to mention the descents at nearly 60mph, throw in 2/3 time trials which are just pain endurance from the go, and then only having 2 rest days is not something to consider as less than running round a track.

Also he has won TT gold beating 2 guys that have dominated TT titles for the last 5-10 years

became the first british winner of the Tour de Romandie a 6 day race in the swiss hills and mountains won in the past by the likes of Cadel Evans, Bernard Hinault, Stephen Roache and Eddy Merckx (if you're not from a cycling background, these guys were the best of their time)

Became the first british winner of the Paris-Nice since 1967, 8 days across france including big mountains, and again won by the likes of those above

Became the only British cyclist to win the Criterium du Dauphine (of which there are 2 others) twice and back to back

Oh and Terry or any footballer even being in the same discussion as these crop of athletes is laughable.
