Certainly not surprised at this, the season was as good as it gets for them. Deserved it, too.

Sports personality and this year 11 of the 12 nominated were from the Olympics. Several from Cycling and although I applaud what he has done- The winner was not my expected winner. Yes he has achieved a lot in the last year but I felt that others had achieved more And probably caught the public's attention more than he had.

Still no "Spoiler" unless you open the link to give some of you a chance to watch the result on your own media.

That is a pretty impressive group of nominees for the award. The winning percentage was a good ways above second place, considering the number of people in the running. I believe I know your pick for Sportsman of the Year after seeing the list, too.
