Tara Phillips? Who’s that then? Oh, an equestrian. Yes, a real national sport that is! Pffft. I just can’t fathom the logic as to how she has been voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year when they were far more worthy candidates.
There were the likes of Joe Calzaghe (current WBO and IBF boxing World Champion, also amazingly, 42 fights with 42 wins), Phil Taylor (current 13 times World Darts Champion) and Nicole Cook (current winner of La Grande Boucle, the womens version of the Tour de France) in the short list. But what do I know, I think the result just shows the warped audience the BBC gets.
Fortunately I’m not going mad since I’m not the only one who thinks it was a weird result.
