I know it's early days, and a lot can happen between now and the end of the year, but Lauren Price's story is pretty amazing, and it'll take a lot, I think, for anyone else to win WSPOTY this year:

I think if the Lions had wont the series, AWJ would have been in with a very good shout after all his achievements, Wales winning the 6N, his comeback from injury to tour etc. - and he must still be a strong contender given rugby's popularity.

Another Olympian with a strong claim is Hannah Mills, winner of her second gold medal and third olympic medal overall:

If they'd had better luck and/or results this year, Jade Jones and Geraint Thomas would have been contenders - but it didn't work out for them. The footballers, too, did OK but it's a team sport and so harder for individuals to stand out.

I wonder if there are other contenders, so far? No doubt others will be in the frame before the end of the year.
