The winner of BBC Cymru Wales Sports Personality of the Year 2010 will be announced on Monday after a contest between six of the country's highest-achieving sportsmen and women.

The award takes place at the Celtic Manor in Newport on 6 December, with the result broadcast on BBC Wales radio, online and television that evening, and a review of the sporting year to be screened at a later date.

There will also be awards for the team of the year, sports unsung hero, junior sportsman, junior sportswoman and lifetime achievement.

It has been a busy sporting year with some notable performances, making it another difficult decision to narrow down Welsh sport's big names to six deserving nominees.

Footballer Gareth Bale has produced some stunning performances for club Tottenham Hotspur and was named Wales Footballer of the Year.

Jazz Carlin became the first Welshwoman in 36 years to win a swimming medal at a Commonwealth Games, when she took 200m freestyle silver and 400m freestyle bronze in Delhi.

Light-heavyweight boxer Nathan Cleverly added the European crown to his British and Commonwealth belts, and stands poised for a world title shot.

Dai Greene claimed 400m hurdles gold at both the European Championships and the Commonwealth Games.

Cyclist Becky James ' rise continued with two track medals in Delhi to push her drive towards London 2012.

Robert Weale won Commonwealth gold in the men's singles lawn bowls in Delhi to become the most successful bowler in Games history.
