There has also been an obvious shortage of female recipients of the award so will that change this year? Looking through the list of winners, there does seem to be specific visible trends. Being part of a successful team or event can undoubtedly increase your chances. Andrew Flintoff won in after playing an important role in England regaining the Ashes. The current holders are the England Cricket team.
With many sporting competitions set to be decided over the few months, there is plenty of time for contenders to emerge. Having just ended their year wait for a league title, Liverpool will fancy their chances of lifting more silverware this year. New customers only.

Another important point to make is that Hamilton has been a prominent voice during a year of uprising, supporting campaigns such as Black Lives Matter and vowing to combat climate change, while asking tough questions of his colleagues and his sport. How many votes that earns him we will never know - sadly, it could even lose him some - but he is to be admired for his actions both on and off the track.
Yes, he drives the fastest car. But he does it better than anyone else could, and has grown into his role of leadership - whether in pursuit of a chequered flag, or something altogether bigger. Unanimously considered snooker's most talented player, O'Sullivan became its most decorated by winning his 37th ranking title this summer.
It was, of course, no ordinary ranking title that he won, as the thenyear-old bagged his sixth World Championship - some 19 years after his first. For all of this, for winning both the Masters and the UK Championship seven times, for more than a thousand career centuries, finally, after 25 years towards the top of his sport, one of the UK's greatest ever sportsmen received his first SPOTY nomination.
It is long overdue. Whether he can topple a record-breaking Hamilton and the motorsport vote we will find out, and perhaps snooker hasn't done enough to promote the idea of a collective push, the like of which racing used to propel AP McCoy to glory a decade ago.
O'Sullivan would be no less worthy a winner, and while reward would in part be an acknowledgement of his career as a whole, in truth he has the full house: longevity, utter brilliance, and an achievement in this very year which would be sufficient in isolation. As popular as ever for all he can infuriate even those close to him, if Hamilton doesn't win, surely it will be O'Sullivan. It's also worth noting that he could be playing in the World Grand Prix final as the ceremony concludes, and it would be oh-so-Ronnie to flick open a laptop to chat via Zoom between ambidextrous centuries.
Then again, it would be no less surprising were he to shrug his shoulders and go for a jog instead. He is one of a kind, all right, and this is probably the last chance this famous award has to honour him properly. Who is Hollie Doyle? However, the message is spreading fast. This has very much been a year of tremendous success for Doyle, her winners breaking her own record for number of victories by a female jockey in a calendar year, but that number has included quality as well as quantity; like her first Group One winner aboard Glen Shiel on Qipco British Champions Day, or her win aboard Trueshan in the Long Distance Cup on the same card.
She gained a first Royal Ascot winner on Scarlet Dragon earlier in the season, too, while her Windsor five-timer in August lit up a summer Saturday afternoon. Back in , Fury became the first man to defeat Wladimir Klitschko and for that, many considered him a likely winner. In the end, he settled for fourth place, sparing the BBC some embarrassment after sexist comments directed towards Jessica Ennis-Hill third in the build-up.
At the time, Fury was followed by controversy, all of his own doing, and it's perhaps not surprising that he was unable to emulate winner Lennox Lewis despite boxing tending to punch above its weight at SPOTY. Five years on, it would be fair to describe him as a changed man, one who has battled his own demons and come out the other side all the stronger.
His draw with Deontay Wilder in most felt Fury had won the fight was the first step towards salvation, and in February of this year he completed it with one of the finest performances a British heavyweight has ever produced, ending the rematch in round seven. Although kept out of the ring since due to factors beyond his control, that victory on US soil is an achievement deserving of a place on the podium.
There's just a concern it's a little dated now and that Fury remains a polarising figure, his style more for the purist than the part-time observer and Anthony Joshua having been dominating headlines recently. The one-man engine room as Liverpool won the Premier League for the first time, Henderson was really the only viable candidate to ensure football was involved - at least, once those in charge had decided to honour Rashford with a separate award.
Henderson has been Liverpool's captain since and while he has at times been questioned by England fans for his performances for his country, ask any Liverpool fan and they'll gladly heap praise on him until you kindly ask them to stop. Henderson's performances drove Liverpool forward and he was rewarded with the Football Writers' award, after which his manager, Jurgen Klopp, said it best: "He grew in that role in an exceptional way, I cannot imagine a player who would have done it like this.
That makes him the wonderful person he is today. Yes, other players played an exceptional season, per cent, but if you want to have a guy that really fought his way through to the point where he is now and [what he] became, it is just absolutely deserved. It's therefore likely that Henderson finishes somewhere between third and fifth having gathered a decent share of the vote.
For so long seen as the supporting actor in the famed Broad and Anderson partnership, is the year when Stuart Broad stood tall as Stuart Broad, no longer living in the shadow of his close friend and fast-bowling ally, but leading from the front for his country, quite often without Anderson by his side.
When Broad was inexplicably dropped by England for the first Test of this summer against the West Indies, England fans were up in arms at his omission and came out in support of the now year-old. When he claimed his th Test wicket at Old Trafford against the West Indies in July, his legend had been confirmed, and when Anderson went to Test wickets only a few weeks later, that Broad was one of the first to congratulate him said everything about Broad the man and this truly remarkable pair.
Anderson had his crack at this award in , and did not make the podium. It's likely that Broad will suffer a similar fate, but cricket fans should nevertheless welcome the opportunity to celebrate a fine career - one that is far from finished. Hamilton is clearly the most likely winner and a shoo-in for the podium, but he's won this award once and that raises something of a red flag. In , he broke Schumacher's pole positions record and became the first Briton to win four world titles, yet finished sixth.
Though figures are no longer released, he has been beaten twice since, losing to Geraint Thomas and Ben Stokes. Granted, Thomas is a Welshman who had won the Tour de France, and Stokes produced one of the most remarkable summers you'll ever see from a cricketer. There was no shame in Hamilton finishing runner-up to either.
And yet in doing so he confirmed yet again that there's always scope for someone whose achievements we're less desensitised to snatching top spot. Of course, O'Sullivan's achievements are hardly new but in a more competitive sport, what he's done in should resonate.
He's extremely popular and snooker remains a BBC sport, if only once a year. How much of an impact that has on voting is yet another unknown, but we'll be reminded during the live show of his dominant final win, and that exhaustingly exceptional semi-final epic against Mark Selby. He will be talked up as the best there has ever been by people who had once held that mantle, like Stephen Hendry. Viewers may well be swayed in his direction.
England cricketer Ben Stokes won the award. With the sporting calendar now looking quite different and less international events taking place, who is in the running for the award? Hamilton has already equaled the all-time record for career Formula 1 victories by winning the Eifel Grand Prix.
Only Stephen Hendry has won more with seven titles. The Liverpool Captain has had another fantastic season and finished the season by lifting the Premier League. The Heavyweight Champion of the World has been a controversial figure at times. Yet, by defeating Deontay Wilder in February , he catapulted his way into the attention of the public and has given himself a great chance of winning the award.
So far the BBC has not removed him and he is still in contention but will he have done enough over the year to bring in the votes? A fantastic jockey, in October , Doyle became the first female jockey to ride a winner on Champions Day at Ascot, when she steered Trueshan to victory in the Long Distance Cup.
The accolades kept rolling in and in November she was named The Sunday Times sportswoman of the year. There are still a few Tests left to play this year and more success over the next few weeks and months could lead to him getting more media and public attention. Who will ever forget those incredible performances at Lords and Headingley? Watch the moment Ben Stokes was announced as the winner. Geraint Thomas — The Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas rode on a wave of public support to win the award.
Perhaps an indication that any of the contenders can take home the award. Sir Christopher John Chataway was the first winner of the award, back in Bobby Moore was the first footballer to win the award in , being an integral part of the first and only England football team to win a major honour clearly helped his chances.
England will be one of the favourites to win the European Championships, so several players could fancy their chances of winning the award. Andy Murray currently has the most award wins with 3. He won it last in when he won an Olympic Gold Medal alongside the Wimbledon title.
There has also been an obvious shortage of female recipients of the award so will that change this year? Looking through the list of winners, there does seem to be specific visible trends. Being part of a successful team or event can undoubtedly increase your chances. Andrew Flintoff won in after playing an important role in England regaining the Ashes.

This nomination — the first from horse racing since Tony McCoy in — is the latest milestone in an incredible year for jockey Doyle. In August the year-old became the first woman to win fives races on the same card in the UK, at odds of at Windsor, and in October she broke her own record for the most winners in a calendar year by a female jockey when she reached An victory over Kyren Wilson at the Crucible in August made him world champion for a sixth time, equalling the tallies of Steve Davis and Ray Reardon, one behind record-holder Stephen Hendry.
It also saw him overtake Hendry at the top of the all-time list of ranking event wins, with 37, and he has a record 20 Triple Crown titles. His maiden ranking title came when he claimed the UK Championship aged The world heavyweight champion asked the BBC to remove his name from the list of contenders but the Beeb refused.
He took a remarkable comeback to new heights in February when he won his rematch against Deontay Wilder, with a superb performance over seven rounds, to claim the WBC title. The year-old was also a SPOTY nominee in , when there were calls for him to be removed from the shortlist due to comments he had made about women and homosexuality.
He apologised at the ceremony. Want to join the conversation? Please register or log in to comment on this article. News you can trust since Sign in Edit Account Sign Out.
