The Rocket to fire himself to SPOTY victory?

O’Sullivan is one of the biggest characters ever to grace the sport of snooker. He won a startling sixth world title at The Crucible this year in superb fashion and is a much deserved addition to the now five-person shortlist.

Hollie Doyle the history maker

Hollie Doyle made history earlier this year when she won five races in a day at Windsor. She is a record breaker, a history maker and fully deserves to be on the list.
