    What an incredible year.

    First ever British Tour de France winner, incredible Olympics and Paralympics in our own country, English team wins Champions League, Premier League is decided with the last kick of the entire season, Murray wins first British tennis major for 76 years, best European Ryder Cup win ever, John Terry retires from England duty. Britain will not have a better year of sport for a very long time.

    Man Utd get embarrassed in Europe, Man Utd get beaten by their little neighbours, Man Utd win no silverware, Man Utd still can't do anything without Scholes and Giggs...

    No, Man Utd can't do anything with Scholes and Giggs now. Get it right.

    And on a more serious note, don't forget that Hamilton can still win the F1 Driver's Championship.

    BBC Sports Unsung Hero Award: Award to someone who "has given their time and talents for free to enable others to participate in sport"

    Well, that's just set up for all the Olympics/Paralympics volunteers, isn't it?

    Heh, you may mock, but that's a good summary of this Summer.

    Most grassroot coaches are volunteers - if they stopped the whole shebang would collapse.

    Got to be the miserable Scot for me. Was a cyclist last year. Poor reason but it's the only way I can split Murray and Wiggins!

    Such a hard list to pick the best out of. Most of them have completely dominated their disciplines.

    Personally, I'd pick Weir, what he managed to do probably won't ever be repeated.

    Andy Murray has to win. Olympic Gold, Wimbledon finalist and U.S. Open champion! This together outweighs Wiggo
  • Deleted user 26 November 2012 20:23:28
    Yeah but he's Scottish and a cunt.

    It's really not as impressive as what Wiggins achieved (in terms of their sports that is).

    Murray would have to have won Wimbledon and got the Olympic gold medal.

    Hehe, I got pretty close with this.

    I'd give the award to Rory McIlroy. He's been outstanding this season. As good as the Olympics were, that Ryder Cup was just something else. The most amazing sequence of sport I've ever seen.

    He's number 1 by a distance. Topped the earning rankings on the US and European Tours. And I'd say his personality beats anyone else on the list. He seems a lovely guy.

    Is having a personality a pre requisite of winning Sports Personality of the Year?

    If so,that kind of rules Andy Murray out, but I still think he has achieved the most.

    FCUTA!

    You know its so weird with Andy Murray. For some reason people dont like him and i just dont get it. When we had Henman everyone said he was posh snd boring! Then Andy comes along with a much more interesting personality and much less "posh" and yet he is slated.

    I really like the fact that he is not that media savvy. He is honest and funny...and please dont even mention the World cup comment he made in jest and which was tsken out of context. How does Wiggy have a bigger personality? Or Mo? Or Ennis? They are maybe a bit more smiley but that isnt personality!

    I agree with bobby, it's baffling the amount of ire thrown at Murray simply because he doesn't play along with the media, you get the same kind of comments about kimi raikonnen in f1. for me it's a personality trait that elevates them far above anyone else!

    can't see past wiggo for this, in my humble opinion anyway; great achievement and good personality, captured the british imagination in a year overflowing with incredible sporting moments.

    Well, you know Murray is Scottish, right?

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    It isn't a contest to see which sportsman has the best personality.

    Wiggins is a bit grating. He comes across as someone desperate to act a certain way to fight the system or some bollocks, being down on it, indie look is fucking annoying too.

    Great achievement but more of a team effort so Murray gets the nod for me.
