Poster Girl for the Olympics, a lot of weight and expectation on her shoulders after Beijing disappointment, lived up to the hype in her 7 events and won gold. inspired plenty of young girls to start athletics and has a beaming personality. She deserves to be 2nd place.
I just wish people could accept 3rd place is great for Andy considering he was 4th favourite to win and still is considered by many to have no personality...
I agree - there was a case for all three (plus Mo Farah) winning. It's so hard to compare different sports, but what they all achieved this summer was fantastic. I was really pleased when Andy won 3rd place - it shows how much people admire his achievements this year.
Though he'll always get comments about his supposed lack of personality - like this one from the Cambio de Terco restaurant twitter account - very unprofessional imo to post a comment like that from a restaurant account, especially as this restaurant is one that a lot of the tennis players use when they're in London:
@CambiodTerco: Could anyone be more boring than Andy Murray????????? #sportspersonalityoftheyear.
