Sportsmen and sportswomen of the year

Novak Djokovic won the award for second consecutive year.

EUROPE
Djokovic and Ennis top AIPS Europe Athletes of the Year 2012 poll


By Charles Camenzuli, AIPS Europe Secretary General

MALTA , January 3, 2013 – For the second year running, 25-year-old tennis ace NOVAK DJOKOVIC and for the first time in her career British athlete JESSICA ENNIS are the winners in the 2012 Edition of the European Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year Awards .

It was the 30th annual poll conducted by AIPS Europe/UEPS. Formerly the European Sports Press Union, AIPS Europe is the largest continental section of AIPS and was established in 1977 at the AIPS Congress in Milano Marittima.

Since 2003, the annual poll has been named the Frank Taylor Trophy in honour of the former president of both AIPS and UEPS.

Serbian NOVAK DJOKOVIC, already a winner of the coveted award in 2011, accumulated 39 votes, ten more than British double Olympic winner Mo Farah. In third place with 28 votes finished Formula 1 Championship winner Sebastian Vettel.

The women's award for the Evgen Bergant Trophy was won by 26-year-old British Olympic heptathlon winner JESSICA ENNIS. With 62 votes to her credit, Ennis polled ahead of Norwegian cross country skier, Marit Bjoergen who received 23 votes, and tennis player Viktoria Azarenka from Belarus with 17 votes.

These are the ones who won the award in the last decade:

Re: Sportsmen and sportswomen of the year

Only tennis and Formula I winners in the men's election, happy to see Dutch star vd Hoogenband there. To my opinion Farah's achievement should be higher appreciated then Djoko's.

Women don't have Formula I and don't have a big tennis domination since Henin, that's why they have other athletes that win the honors.

Now open for the 2013 subscriptions! Subleague for MTF currently the biggest in the contest!

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Wiggins? For a cyclist, the Olympic Games are not top priority. As for winning TdF, that is of course good, but from a European perspective it is no better to be the first Brit than the xxth Frenchman or Belgian. The best European cyclist does better than the other continents most of the time, only exeptions that come to mind are three 20+ years old titles to a US cyclist and one recent to an Australian. So a European winner here is as expected. You can of course say the same for Formula One, and in that I'd say you were right. Wiggins is at least a better candidate than Vettel.

Mo Farah is the British candidate this year. His double is quite rare, and a trememdous achievement.

Re: Sportsmen and sportswomen of the year

pretty weird, a tennis player as the winner in an olympic year. Now I must admit, the great olympic achievements didn't really come from the europeans this year but still.

That is fast becoming a tradition, Federer getting the nod in 2004 and Nadal in 2008.
