Sports personality of the year is coming.

List of ten deserving nominees have been released for the general public to cast their votes.

I have always thought the ‘personality’ part to be a misnomer. More about, who’s won the biggest trophy of the year?

This year we have a cyclist, a tennis player, a boxer, two cricketers and two from athletics plus three golfers. A good reflection of which sports we’ve excelled in this year and those unmentioned where we’ve still play like a donkey.

With the London Olympics next year it’s good to see a couple of nominations from the world of athletics.

But with nearly a 1 in 3 chance a golfer should lift the title. There could be nostalgia vote for Darren Clarke after winning The Open. Or a popular vote for young ‘curly mop’ Rory. Still you could always vote for the World No.1 golfer and Mr Personality himself Luke Donald.

  1. The short list of ten is short of a female sports personality.
