Ennis-Hill Third In BBC SPOTY
20 December 2015
Jessica Ennis-Hill was third following a memorable night for athletics at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards.
Ennis Hill was one of three athletics nominees making the final event, as well as there being a nod for Toni Minichiello with a nomination for Coach of the Year. She sealed her third with a superb performance to win world gold in 2015, after a pregnancy break.
Andy Murray won the award for a second time having led the Great Britain Davis Cup team to victory in 2015, whilst Rugby League’s Leeds Rhino’s captain Kevin Sinfield was second, his team having achieved a domestic treble of trophies this year.
