The BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award is the main award of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony, which takes place each December. The winner is the sportsperson, judged by a public vote, to have achieved the most that year. The recipient must either be British or reside and play a significant amount of their sport in the United Kingdom. The winner is selected by a public-vote from a pre-determinted shortlist. The most recent award winner is Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton, who won in 2014.

Sports Personality of the Year was created by Paul Fox, who thought of the idea while he was editor of the magazine show Sportsview. The first award ceremony took place in 1954 as part of Sportsview, and was presented by Peter Dimmock.[1] For the first show, votes were sent by postcard, and rules presented in a Radio Times article stipulated that nominations were restricted to athletes who had featured on the Sportsview programme since April. Approximately 14,500 votes were cast, and Christopher Chataway beat Roger Bannister to win the inaugural BBC Sportsview's Personality of the Year Award.[2]

Three people have won the award more than once: boxer Henry Cooper and the Formula One drivers Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill have each won twice.[3] Snooker player Steve Davis has finished in the top three a record five times.[4]

Princess Anne (1971) and her daughter Zara Phillips (2006) are the only award-winners to be members of the same family. The oldest recipient of the award is Dai Rees, who won in 1957 aged 44. Ian Black, who won the following year, aged 17, is the youngest winner.[3] Torvill and Dean, who won in 1984, are the only non-individual winners of the award, so than in the 61 years of the award there have been 62 recipients. Of these 13 have been female.[5] 17 sporting disciplines have been represented; athletics has the highest representation, with 17 recipients. Counting Torvill and Dean separately, there have been 49 English winners of the award, five Scottish,[6] four Welsh,[7] three Irish,[8][9] and one Manx.

Nomination procedure

The shortlist is announced a few weeks before the award ceremony, and the winner is determined on the night by a public telephone and on-line vote. Prior to 2012, a panel of thirty sports journalists each submitted a list of ten contenders. From these contenders a shortlist of ten nominees was determined. This method was criticized following the selection of an all-male shortlist in 2011. The selection process for contenders was changed for the 2012 and subsequent awards by the introduction of an expert panel. The panel produces a shortlist that reflects UK sporting achievements on the national and/or international stage, represents the breadth and depth of UK sports and takes into account ‘impact’ within and beyond the sport or sporting achievement in question.

Notes

  1. ^ a b c d Torvill and Dean refers to the English figure skating pair of Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean. For the summary tables each individual is counted as winning half an award, so together they are treated as one winner of the award.[19]
  2. ^ In 1991 Bob Nudd received the most votes—at more than 100,000—following a campaign in the Angling Times.[34] However the BBC deemed this to be against the rules and "discarded all the ballots cast on forms printed in the Angling Times".[35]
  3. ^ Justin Fashanu received a large number of votes following a campaign in Gay Times, but was disqualified from the award by the BBC.[40][41]
