It seems that Great Britain has no worthy female athletes this year...as least non that make the BBC's annual BBC Sports Personality top 10 list.
Every year sports writers in Britain nominated and vote for their Top Ten Sports Personalities of the year.
This year athletes like cycling's Mark Cavendish, and running's Mo Farah were selected into the BBC's top ten list.
BTW: You can see the entire list HERE.
What do they all have in common?
The shot answer...they all lack two X chromosomes. All of the athletes in the BBC's annual BBC Sports Personality top 10 list are men.
Chrisssie Wellington, who of course won the Ironman World Championships for a third time this year, recently tweeted:
"No women in @bbcspoty top ten. Its not about me, its about the need to celebrate achievements of so many female GBR athletes. Disgraceful."
Swimmer Keri-anne Payne, who, according to Manachaster Evening Standard "won the 10k open water World Championships in Shanghai this year and was the first person to qualify for the Olympics," didn't make the list.
Check out the The Manchester Evening News sports editor Peter Spencer defended the nominations today in the video below.
