reading the Sarah Stevenson story I would have to put her top of the list. Its a bit shocking they thought there no women considered worthy of short listing.

A diffiult one. In every case my response was "who...?" whereas I have heard of every one of the shortlist. Remember this is a final shortlist: imagine if the population had a free vote then the top 10 were slected as a shortlist for the final programme. I really don't think it would be any different.


So the question is whether the shortlist should be designed to promote womens sport or minority sports (or whatever) or whether it is to reflect the population' knowledge of the sporting world.

The short list should be to recognise the sporting personalities of the year, with emphasis of where a person has shown personal strength/achievement.

In September a 19 year old English lad called Danny Hart became the World Champion in his sport and didn't get mentioned, but downhill mountain biking doesn't attract £millions. Over the past 10 years Steve Peat has been a World Cup winner three times, same story.

That would explain a lot about most of the BBC.

Didn't mention that last year Gee Atherton (British) won the UCI World Cup (the same trophy Steve Peat has won). Notably, they both have personalities!
