Have your say

THERE was a double celebration for Olympic gold medallist Jess Ennis yesterday as she was named on the shortlists of two major awards.

Ennis is one of 12 on the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award list and in the top 10 of the William Hill Sportswoman Of The Year Award.

Boxer Nicola Adams, who trained for her Olympic gold at the English Institute of Sport in Attercliffe and the Ingle gym in Wincobank is on the BBC list, but not William Hill’s. Cyclist Bradley Wiggins is the favourite for the BBC award on December 16.
