Celebrating all that sport has to offer

by Banana Crumble | Dec 19, 2019

Over the past few years we often feature sport in our Good News section and all of the positive aspects that can be gained from taking part. There are so many sports and for us one of the year’s highlights, helping to celebrate all that sport has to offer, is the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year or SPOTY as it is affectionately known.

Over the course of the evening there are so many different sports featured  by people literally at the top of their game. Our highlight of the evening was the Helen Rollason Award winner Doddie Weir. Doddie is a Scottish Rugby Union legend who was in 2016 diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. There is no cure for MND and Doddie has campaigned tirelessly to raise funds and awareness for the illness.

He launched his charity My name’5 Doddie Foundation and has raised almost five million pounds. The aim of his charity is to help with research and to make the lives of those living with MND easier. Doddie spoke and to hear his words was really moving, the courage of someone to speak so openly and yet so humbly was definitely a special moment.

For such incredible sportsman being nominated to be the Sports Person of the Year must be the icing on the cake for what was a truly amazing year for sport. This year the title went to Ben Stokes who probably gave us all goosebumps during the remarkable cricket World Cup. Even the highlights made us smile and remember those winning moments that cricket and non cricket fans enjoyed together. 2019 has been a fantastic year with so many world records, world titles and other achievements that 2020 will have a tough act to follow. Although, with an Olympic Year, the European Football Finals, Lewis Hamilton attempting to equal the legendary Michael Schumacher’s seven world titles to name but a few we will certainly have a good year of sport to look forward to.
