An incredible year of sport has once again seen a host of achievements; the rugby team's promotion, LSAC's domination at the Olympic stadium and more than enough BUCS golds to cause offers from cashforgold. Loughborough have shown the country the exact meaning of Walk on Water.
Voting has now been CLOSED. Thank you to everybody that took the time to vote, you can read a full interview with the Label's Sport Personality of the Year in the final edition of Label for this year, available on June 8.
A quick reminder of the nominees are below.
Sophie Thomas: Athletics Chair
Sophie Thomas deserves to win above anyone else due to her amazing contribution not only as a team member in Loughborough Students Athletics Club, medalling at BUCS, but as a dedicated Chair who never rests until everything is running smoothly. People respect her and I believe the next chair will have some very big boots to fill.
As secretary on the AU Exec and writing match reports and tweeting for the Loughborough Lightning matches, amongst other things, this girl never rests!
Bryony Chapman: Elyvn IMS
Bryony has shown tremendous commitment and passion throughout this season's IMS programme. Everyone always comments on how well she performs whenever she takes part, even when that sport may not be her first choice!
She is always happy to make herself available and work around her course commitments to ensure Elvyn has a full squad for each event. She also works exceptionally hard each time she takes part and this if often shown through our results.
Claire Stapenhill: Trampolining Chair and Captain
Claire Stapenhill has been Captain of the trampoline club and recently stepped up to Chair. She has had to organise competitions, get people to go to competitions, deal with people dropping out at the last minute, as well as competing at a very high standard being on the podium including a few wins in various competitions.
She was also the first girl to ever win trampoline points at BUCS this year. She never misses a training session and always will set up and take down the trampolines. She also is part of the gymnastic club and regularly attends their sessions too.
Russel Weir: Rugby Union
A outstanding player and leader, Russell helped the rugby club achieve more than they ever have done before. Getting promotion from the National League 2 North up into the national league is the biggest achievement in the clubs history and something we will all remember for a long time.
Russell was key to gaining that promotion, providing team spirit when we needed it most and that is why he should win the award.
Justine Kinney: Athletics
Justine Kinney is an extremely dedicated 400m hurdler. Not only did she write her name into the history (and quiz) record books by winning the first ever competitive race in the Olympic Stadium but also went onto win BUCS Gold.
Nobody within LSAC was more deserving of a gold medal at the Olympic Stadium earlier this term after Justine won silver in 2010, 2009 and 2008 and Bronze in 2007. She is the model of consistency and thoroughly deserved to be stood on the top step of the podium this year.
Amber Hughes: Womens Football
Amber Hughes scorer of not only the final goal in the BUCS final, but also the proud recipient of the match ball, with a stunning hat trick, leaving an England filled Hertfordshire team and the Arsenal women’s coach shocked, as LSWFC ran out 4-0 winners.
Amber a fresher whose has secured a starting place in LSWFC first XI has been instrumental in LSWFC gaining BUCS Gold for the first time in 5 years. Chants of “Poo should start for England” will be forever chanted amongst the LSWFC girls.
