Murray Urges BBC Not to Award Sports Personality of the Year

With odds of 7/2 Andy Murray is second favourite to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award; however, he is urging the BBC not to give anyone the award.

Murray said that there should “be a celebration of the year as a whole and of what we, as a nation, have achieved, rather than singling one person out and saying he or she has had the best year.

“ He went on to say that it is “so hard to decide because so many things have happened this year.

I can’t see us having another year like this for a while.”

Favourite to win is Bradley Wiggins (8/13) with Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis not far behind at 5/1 and 12/1 respectively.

All four of these athletes are certainly in the nations, and each other’s minds.

When asked about his favourite moment as a spectator this year Murray said it was the evening in the Olympic Stadium when Ennis, Rutherford and Farah all won gold in under 45 minutes, he said “There were certain things I missed through travelling and not being able to watch, but I saw that evening and it was really cool.”
