Phil Taylor

Phil Taylor's 2010

Sports Personality of the Year
Venue: Birmingham LG Arena Date: Sunday, 19 December Time: 1900 GMT Coverage: Live on BBC One, BBC Radio 5 Live & BBC Sport website.

We will be dedicating a day to one of the top 10 contenders from 6-17 December (in alphabetical order).


Phil 'The Power' Taylor has enjoyed a stunning year even by his own incredibly high standards.

Taylor has collected six major titles in 2010, including the World Championship, Premier League and World Matchplay crowns.

The world number one won a 15th World Championship when he outclassed unseeded Australian Simon Whitlock 7-3 in the final.

And Taylor thrilled fans when he hit two nine-dart finishes on his way to securing the Premier League title for a fifth time in May.

Now 50, the Stoke-on-Trent star remains the one to beat, and his legacy as the greatest darts player of all time is already secured.

No darts player has ever lifted the Sports Personality of the Year trophy but Taylor is a man used to breaking records throughout his career.
