What's weirder is that he has exactly the credentials usually needed to win this i.e no personality.
If Murray wins Wimbledon next year then I think he will win it, which is very possible with his performances there this year and at the olympics. Also as Wimbledon is one of the few events that the BBC show these days and they will plug that no end.
Wiggo deserved the win but it really could have been almost any of the 12 with the success of Team G.B. It was great to look back on the the sporting year. A nice touch for Brailsford to get coach of the year too, With the track team doing even better than their excellent performance in Beijing there couldn't be anyone else who deserved it more not to mention success with Team sky. A nice touch from him to include the joke about the 'round wheels' aimed at the French too
