  • Nicola Sanders BOA AOY

    I assumed this had been posted already this week but couldn't find it at a quick glance...
    Nicola Sanders was named British Olympic Association's AOY.

    This is a very interesting choice from the BOA.

    I assume they wanted to make a statement re Ohuruogu. Otherwise, they wouldn't give the award to someone who lost to another British athlete in the most important competition of the year.

      Exactly. One the one hand they clear Ohuruogu, but on the other they don't want to be seen to be rewarding her either.

      I'd be interested to read how many tests Sanders has had this year and whether she has missed any, out of curiosity.
