Mo for me.

oohlaalaa Fri 07-Dec-12 13:21:02

Andy Murray for me.

Chris Hoy has won it before.

In the face of such huge and very deserving competition I would like it to go to Ellie Simmonds.

The award isn't given for personality! Otherwise how would Steve Davis have won?

Jessica or Mo. I will never forget watching them win. Makes me teary just thinking about it.

Andy Murray for me.

Andy Murray for me. And he does have a personality. He is a lovely lad with a great sense of humour

Jess the pressure on her was extraordinary.
She responded so well and has such a lovely smile.

Mind you Mo's smile is even cuter.

Honestly I don't think we should have one winner this year they were all brilliant and did themselves and the country proud.

I still think Dave Weir over Wiggins just because the Tour is really a team win and Weir has such a story arc. And he's local to me.

I am afraid to say the only member of the equestrian team that I know by name - Nick Skelton - is know for his total lack of personality - sorry sad

EasyFromNowOn Sat 01-Dec-12 09:33:06

Mirage - there's a separate team award, but it isn't open to public vote. I don't know if they'd split the equestrian team out from team GB as a whole for it though.

toomuchmonthatendofthemoney Sat 01-Dec-12 00:23:08

Sir Chris Hoy or Andy Murray - well it is St Andrews Day!! grin

Actually think this is a really tough year to choose, so many amazing performances.

I think I may also vote Ellie, her comeback swim had me in tears, yelling hoarsely at the tv, one of my moments of the Games. But everyone deserves credit for outstanding performances. <off to pick splinters out my arse from fence>

Mirage Sat 01-Dec-12 00:12:03

None of the equestrian teams nominated then? Despite their amazing performances?

angelinterceptor Thu 29-Nov-12 17:00:46

Bradley Wiggins - no contest he has achieved way more than all the rest.

ivykaty44 Thu 29-Nov-12 14:00:58

If it wasn't forwiggins then I would I think have to vote for Ennis, It was Ennis that had me in tears the night she won Gold

Cozy9 Thu 29-Nov-12 13:06:09

The whole Lance Armstrong thing might have damaged Wiggins chances, cycling is seen as a dirty sport. I think either Ennis or Murray will win.

Nancy66 Thu 29-Nov-12 08:23:08

I dont' think Murray's achievements do outweight Wiggins.

He didn't win the greatest prize in his sport

44SoStartingOver Thu 29-Nov-12 06:43:27

It has just been such an outstanding year hasn't it? The Olympic coverage has actually enabled people to see them as people.

Paralympians as people has been one of the best things about 2012. I'd have to go for weir or Sarah storey because of their flexibility in vastly different events or sports.

ceebeegeebies Thu 29-Nov-12 06:41:17

It should be based on achievements but as it is a phone vote by the public it does turn into a popularity contest which is wrong.

Still stand by my previous assertion that Murray's achievements outweigh Wiggans.

msrisotto Thu 29-Nov-12 06:39:23

Well the short list may have been but seeing as the public vote the winner, it's more of a popularity contest.

Cozy9 Thu 29-Nov-12 06:35:31

No, it is based on achievement.

msrisotto Thu 29-Nov-12 06:26:24

This award isn't based on achievement but personality!

msrisotto Thu 29-Nov-12 06:25:32

Wiggo, successful cyclist though he is, doesn't actually have much of a personality though! Same for Murray! I want one of the girls to win but it's hard to say who.
