Ellie Simmonds nominated for Sports Personality of the Year
Everyone at The Lord’s Taverners would like to extend their congratulations to Ellie Simmonds who has become the first Taverners ambassador to be nominated for BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
Ellie has had a remarkable year. She went into her home Paralympic games as Britain's highest profile Paralympian and she coped admirably with that added pressure while securing two golds, a silver and a bronze in the pool at an age of just 17.
Ellie is also joined by fellow multi medal winning Paralympians David Weir and Sarah Storey on the shortlist, which is great recognition for disability sport.
