Half of SPOTY voters picked Cav

Fri, 23 Dec 2011

Nearly half of the sports fan who voted in last night's Sports Personality of the Year Awards wanted Mark Cavendish to win.

The Manx cyclist topped the poll with 49.47% of the vote, which was just over 169,000 votes.

Second placed Darren Clarke got 12.34% of the vote, whilst third placed Mo Farah had 8.7% percent.

Chief Minister Allan Bell has described the award as a fitting finale to an exceptional year.

In 2011, Cav won the Tour de France green jersey and was crowned road race world champion.
