    Anyone with even half a brain could work out even just viewing this year's nominations what the event is about, the fact its been running for so many years and people still think it's based on personality is baffling

    I admit it's not the best name they could have gone for but it seems some people are not aware that the word personality has more than one meaning.

    Nah, Adam Peaty should.
    Gold medals and world records left, right and centre.
    He is way ahead of anyone else in his events and has taken his sport to a new level.

    Some of us are pretty ignorant like that.

    I would love Mo Farah to win, just an unbelievably brilliant career, gutted he didnít win that last race at a Championship but still, another magnificent year for a truly iconic, world wide superstar.

    Lewis Hamilton broke a ridiculous number of records this year, he too would be a worthy winner for me, another magnificent year from an absolutely fantastic winner. After this year he will rightly be remembered alongside Senna, Schumacher, Fangio and all as one of the absolute greatest of all time.

    He retired from track, he now runs road races.

    No he wonít . That sport is now more than ever reflective of the inner standards in the team than the guy behind the wheel. Yes heís churned out wins, but same league as Senna as a driver ? Not even close

    So why isn’t Bottas Champion this year ?
    Why is he not even 2nd if the team and car is so much better ?
    Why wasn’t Rosberg a multiple champion ?

    I’m sorry you clearly dislike Hamilton but to dismiss him like that is nonsense.

    I think it's Farah or AJ, think Farah will get it, AJ will have other times and boxing isn't on terrestrial telly that much.

    Too be honest I don't even watch it, when I was a kid i did because I liked watching all the clips as TV wasn't saturated like it is now.
    dont look back in anger.

    That's a bit contradictory!

    What i find amazing is on social media is the amount if f1 experts who have the experience of driving different cars from different eras that know that,the current Merc is the easiest to drive ever, oddly enough all seem to dislike Hamilton, strange that

    I'll go for Hamilton with Joshua 2nd and Farah 3rd.
    Mohammad has no chance. He couldn't even get into the top three last year after achieving more in his events than any other British representative in track and field ever

    Someone who doesn't watch boxing thinks AJ won't win, eh. I think you'll be in for a big surprise.

    Like most years, I couldn't tell you what sport most of the nominees are involved in.

    Well I think it's a fair bet that Froome ain't gonna win it.
