Who should be Young Sports Personality 2010?

Find out more about the award

What do Wayne Rooney, Andy Murray, Tom Daley and Ellie Simmonds all have in common?

Well, obviously they're all amazing at sport - but that would have been too easy. The answer is they're all past winners of BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year.

That's an award for an outstanding young sporting talent, that's presented each December. It's not December yet BUT it's already time to make suggestions for who should win this year.

SO - who do you think should be Young Sports Personality of the Year 2010?
