BBC Sports Personality Betting
Sports Personality Odds
Sports Personality betting is always one of the highlights of Christmas as the year's outstanding performers are recognised at BBC Sport's new home, MediaCityUK in Salford. Founded in 1954, the winner is always decided by public vote and goes to the sportsperson deemed to have achieved the most over the previous 12 months. This means the odds for Sports Personality of the Year are always fascinating, as people can have extremely different opinions about who is most deserving of the award.
Sports Personality Winners
The BBC Sports Personality winners list is littered with iconic British sporting legends. In the history of the award, only 3 people have ever managed to win twice: they are Henry Cooper, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill. English citizens tend to dominate, winning on 45 occasions, while athletes have won the most Sports Personality Awards by sport - with a combined 17 winners.
