Who is the candidate?

This year, there are 6 names shortlisted Sports Personality of the Year.

  • Emma Raducanu – Tennis
  • Tom Daley – Snorkeling
  • Tyson Fury – Boxing
  • Raheem Sterling – Football
  • Adam Peaty – Swimming
  • Dame Sarah Storey – Cycling

Raducanu just won his second Grand Slam Tennis at the US Open in September, two months after his Wimbledon debut.

Daley ended up winning that elusive Olympic Gold medal in Tokyo with diving partner Matty Lee in the 10m.

Sterling was nominated after his three goals helped England reach the Euro 2020 final and win the Premier League with Manchester City for the third time in four years.

Peaty defended her Olympic breaststroke Gold in Tokyo, and also won Gold in the 4x100m medley relay.

He won silver in the 4x100m event.

Storey won two gold medals in Tokyo to become the most successful British Paralympic athlete of all time.

Final candidate

On the list is also Tyson Fury – the reigning WBC world heavyweight champion.

Fury was on the list for the second time in a row, but declined to attend the ceremony.

He believes he doesn’t need the award to prove who he is, and has previously instructed lawyers to stop the BBC from picking him.

Current odds have Raducanu as favorite at the time of writing – any female winner will be the first since Zara Phillips 2006.

How to vote Sports Personality of the Year

Voting won’t open until Sunday’s live show.
