BBC Sports Personality of the Year Odds

Marcus Rashford Sports Personality of the Year

Rashford has made it all the way to the top as joint-favourite with Tyson Fury. The reason behind his rash rise is due to his many achievements outside the pitch. The young forward managed to set up a campaign helping disadvantaged schoolchildren and raised a staggering £20m as Rashford aims to eradicate poverty in the UK.

Rashford however, didn’t only leave it at that. He took it higher, all the way up to the government and thus persuaded Prime Minister Boris Johnson to extend a food voucher scheme over the summer holidays which would provide meals for around 1.3 million children.

The Manchester United star strung a chord among the public via his open letter to MPs urging them to listen to him and reverse their decision on the free school meal vouchers, giving them an insight in how he grew up having to use food banks and receiving free meals as a kid.

All his hard work to ensure children all over the UK have access to food has made him extremely popular within the nation and earned him that joint-favourite spot to win this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year with odds of 6/4.

This 6/4 price comes just weeks after the Englishman was a high 50/1 with some bookmakers.

Tyson Fury Sports Personality of the Year

It was proven, fairly early on, that boxing heavyweight champion Tyson Fury was the one to look out for to snatch away the award for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year. His exceptional performance against Deontay Wilder made him the public’s favourite nominee.

However, Tyson is not only to be praised for how well he performs in the ring, but his actions outside it also bear a great message as well and the public has been quick to jump on that wagon.

The last few months, Fury has kept busy by taking to Instagram to share his daily workout regime with his supporters and encouraging them to exercise more alongside him. As of long he has been a mental health advocate, having battled it himself and documented his struggles to help those in need.

Even during these unprecedented times, Tyson did not forget to keep fighting, making it clear he will keep on fighting to support the cause of mental health.

In the past, Fury has allowed the public a glimpse inside his life and mental health problems through various news reports and documentaries. Once the nation became aware of his hardships and many years of struggle, they also learned about his devotion to help raise awareness for the matter. The boxer then climbed rapidly in the nation’s regard and was soon branded a national sporting hero.

Lewis Hamilton Sports Personality of the Year

Loads of good things have come from the motorsport world the past few months. Their decision to do their bit for the NHS by donating items to be auctioned with all proceeds going into healthcare has not gone unnoticed.

One person in particular caught the public’s eye with his Austrian and British Grands Prix 2019 race suit donation, Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton. The 35-year-old, not being able to jump in a race car over the last few months, has managed to keep himself quite busy outside the sports world.

Being the best in the business has definitely won the Formula One superstar the love of the public but unfortunately also suffers some hate all the same. What won most people over to his side was mainly his complete embrace of social media as a platform to stand up to bring awareness to Black Lives Matter shortly after George Floyd’s death. Using his platform not only to communicate his utter outrage, but also to criticise the F1 fraternity for keeping silent in these times when it is necessary to speak up and stand together.

Hamilton will most likely take a knee when Formula One returns in Austria next month having spoken out against racism repeatedly and earning a lot of sympathiser’s respect.

All these gestures coming together make him one of the favourites to take away the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award.

Jordan Henderson Sports Personality of the Year

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson made headlines and sent a wave of gratitude through the nation when he announced talks were on the way to raise a significant amount of money from Premier League footballers to help the NHS and those most in need. The public praised him for the enormous role he chose to play in these unprecedented times.

Henderson remained humble and did not want to take credit for the scheme which he worked out with Manchester United’s Harry Maguire and Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Harry Kane. The fundraiser, which they named #PlayersTogether, launched via social media after talks between all 20 of the top flight’s captains had been concluded. The public will never forget it was Henderson who initiated the talks which led to the fundraiser going into effect, relieving NHS workers and people in need.

The nation stood by and watched the scheme play out to be a great success, but Henderson did not stay put and end it there. His palms were itching, and he set up yet another scheme one month later, which was known throughout social media as #shirtsforheroes.

The 29-year-old Liverpool captain sold signed shirts online via eBay through that campaign, raising yet again more money for the NHS which was welcomed by supporters and non-supporters with loud applause and earning him a chance at this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award.
