4 Cyclists and no footballers.
Bobby Charlton once nearly ran me over at Old Trafford
Great Result and spot on . Best Olympics ever (can't compare to 1908 - some events only the Brits entered) had to be an Olympian. I voted for Hoy. I think Becky second and then let Hamilton in third but not picky that was the right result. Coaching award to a non celebrity (football manager) as well.
Cycling did well and finally got recognition after 40 years.
Didn't see the whole show as was at Race of Champions at Wembley (so saw Hoy and Hamilton there before they flew up to Liverpool) so can't comment on the rest of the proceedings. Although the right choices appear to have been made in each category and in a year when Football had to take a back seat they even managed a master-stroke by giving out a Lifetime achievement award to Bobby Charlton - and you can't argue with that either.
