Three Paralympians On #SPOTY16 Shortlist
There was a time when the idea of one Paralympian on the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year shortlist was a cause for celebration here at Same Difference.
Thankfully, that’s no longer true. These days, we just list them. This year, there are three:
Sophie Christiansen – Equestrian, Kadeena Cox – Athletics/Cycling, Dame Sarah Storey – Cycling.
Same Difference sincerely congratulates them all. Dame Sarah Storey is on the list for the second time in our memory.
We also send sincere congratulations to Paralympians Tom Hamer, Ellie Robinson, Lauren Rowles and Jess Stretton who have all made it on to the Young SPOTY shortlist.
Young SPOTY results will be announced on Blue Peter on Thursday 8 December. SPOTY results will be announced in a live show on BBC One on 18 December.
