Now I don’t know about you but picking the sports personality of the year for 2012 is impossible!
Every single athlete that took part in the Olympics brought so much passion; regardless if they won a medal or not.
From the opening ceremony with the Queen and James Bond to the Paralympics which was closed by Coldplay I have to say I loved every single minute of it.
Before any of the games started I thought Bradley Wiggins was a sure thing for the award; the only Briton to ever win the Tour De France. But then you look at Mo Farah winning two golds; only the seventh man in history to do the double at both five and ten thousand metres.
Sir Chris Hoy did superbly well as he has done in previous games and it would appear it’s his swan song. Then there’s the super human David Weir who won four gold’s; the man has the strength of a pride of lions!
Nicola Adams winning the first ever women’s gold in the boxing; her smile would light up even the darkest room as would Ellie Simmons who got the four medals including the matching set.
Jonnie Peacock's performance was one of the best of the games and at 19 his future looks fabulous.
Jessica Ennis in my view had the most pressure because she was the ‘poster girl’, the way she performed you wouldn’t have thought so, she made it look easy.
Ben Ainslie in the sailing again brought home the gold in style; again a man under a lot of pressure to do it on home soil.
Victoria Pendleton rode her heart out and was splendid in her last games. The list could go on and on and that’s why I think the whole team deserve the award; one individual hasn’t worked harder than another.
Andy Murray won a gold and a silver, and won the US Open this week, his first Grand Slam, and the first by a British man since Fred Perry in 1936. That has reignited this whole debate.
Rory McIlroy won a golfing major and is an afterthought in this debate, any other year he wouldn't be. The golfers can still have their say with the Ryder Cup of course, and will be part of the Olympics in Rio at 2016.
It is my firm belief the BBC should do something unprecedented and give the award to the whole team.
I was lucky enough to go along to the parade through London and all I saw was smiling faces; and that was two hours before the floats past us/ Putting all the Team GB athletes together to me only seemed right.
The motto of the games, ‘Inspire a generation’ is a great motto and one that I think will happen.
I’m a proud Londoner; my city is one of the best in the world! From the games makers and the crowds that I have to say were so loud; it was the best games ever! The nice thing is I got to see it in my own country on my own doorstep. Well done London and very well done team GB!
