I’m quite surprised at this really. Beth Tweddle has not been considered in the nominations for 2010. The short list was revealed yesterday without featuring Beths name despite earning her third World Title last month.

Contenders on the short list are:

Diver Tom Daley

Cyclist Mark Cavendish

Heptathlon Jessica Ennis

Boxer David Haye

Jockey AP McCoy

Golfer Graeme McDowell

Graeme Swann

Darts Player Phil Taylor

Golfer Lee Westwood

Winter Olympic Gold Medalist Amy Williams

What a pity that Beth hasn’t been recognised for her great achievement at Worlds this year. Read more from the Crewe Chronicle. Sam Oldham has been shortlisted for the Young Sports Personality of the Year 2010
