Sorry for the Daily Mail link...
Who do you think will win? Such a tough call this year. I think Bradley Wiggins will get it but David Weir will get my vote. He was amazing!

I think it might be Bradley Wiggins too, not sure who I'd vote for though.

Gary Linekar read out the list on the one show yesterday. It's such a hard decision of who to vote for. I though maybe Ellie Simmons or Mo Farrah (probably both spelt incorrectly) both stand a good chance.

Wow, that's quite a list of nominees though H and I think Bradley Wiggins will get it. I would vote for Ellie Simmons as I think she's fantastic.
27/11/2012 at 18:43
If I were the voting type, I'd be voting Mo Farah.
27/11/2012 at 18:56
I would be voting for Bradley Wiggins if it was my choice. The Tour and a gold in the same year is phenomenal, his medal podium made me cry. Although, so did Mo's so who knows. I think it's a list of very worthy winners this year.

It's been a fantastic year or sport but I think maybe David weir he was amazing but then again Bradley winning the tour and gold! Such a hard one!

I was listening to the list on Radio 2 this morning and I really can't decide who I think should win. Wiggins was amazing but so were the rest as well, Ben Ainslie's four gold medals was a huge achievement.

For me, without a doubt its Kath Grainger. Even Sir chris said that in an interview. Going for that long and never giving up takes a lot. I cried with them in beijing and i cried with them in London. But she won't win.

That's quite a list. Not sure who I'd want to win really as they have all had a fantastic year. But, Mo Farrah winning that 2nd gold medal was such a memorable moment for me so I'd probably go for him.

I think Bradley Wiggins deserves SPOTY. I think maybe there should have been a special Olympian of the year award too though (maybe there already is, I don't pay enough attention to sports!).

Bradley Wiggins for me - the first British to win the Tour De France and he won gold at the Olympics. I would like to see Jessica Ennis as a runner up - she did so well in the heptathlon and managed to break a few records too.

It's such a tough call! If it's personality though, I couldn't vote for Wiggins, I don't like him *runs for cover*

I agree with CK, I think Katherine Grainger is the most deserving to win this accolade after the years and years of never giving up. But I don't think she'll win, because she's not a media darling. I hate these competitions, it's not about who is the best like in actual sport, it's a popularity contest as who wins depends on who has the most media support and exposure during the voting.

Me too about Kath Grainger, she is amazing.
I think it'll be Wiggins, however, poor Murray, any other year, it would have been him
16/12/2012 at 10:36
Bradley wiggins will win it, with Jessica Ennis in 2nd and I think Ellie Simmonds in 3rd.
16/12/2012 at 11:52
I would say Bradley Wiggins too, getting the tour and the gold medal - awesome, but Mo is also up there - winning gold in two long distance events like that is amazing.
16/12/2012 at 12:05
I think it will be Bradley Wiggins. His achievement in the Tour de France is amazing enough but to then go on and win gold. Shame he had to spoil it by his helmet comment.
My vote is for David Weir. I really hope a Paralympian wins to show how the whole London experience changed perceptions.

I think Bradley Wiggins deserves it.
