Elise Christie - short track speed skating; Sir Mo Farah - athletics, Chris Froome - cycling, Lewis Hamilton - F1, Anthony Joshua - boxing, Harry Kane - football, Johanna Konta - tennis, Jonnie Peacock - Para-athletics, Adam Peaty - swimming, Jonathan Rea - motorcycling, Anya Shrubsole - cricket, Bianca Walkden - taekwondo. Hmm - no Rugby players included in the shortlist this year, despite being a Lions year? AJ favourite for me. Tom Brady (American football), Roger Federer (tennis), Katie Ledecky (swimming), Tatyana McFadden (Para-athletics), Sally Pearson (athletics) and Michael van Gerwen (darts). Overseas - seems odds onto be Federer. Surprised at the shortlist excluded Rafa, who finished world no.1 and also won two grand slams. Bit of a snub, but then suppose Wimbledon is the main reason.
