I'm voting for @JakeSWightman for #SPOTY Such an incredible moment on the track. It's hard to quantify the gruelling, lonely graft in what looks like a few minutes of running but it's what makes the achievement all the more glorious! What a world champ!
Unsurprisingly, as an athletics fan, I will be voting for @JakeSWightman for #SPOTY. To win the men's 1500m at a World Champs is extraordinarily difficult, which is why no British man has managed it for nigh-on 40 years.
Great interview from @JakeSWightman on #SPOTY Real hard graft over the winter including cross country racing got him to the top of the rostrum when winning World 1500m Gold beating the Olympic Champion. Vote Jake tonight. @scotathletics
#SPOTY voted for Jake for an amazing run on the world stage, but unlike Ovett, Coe and Cram, I can't see him even getting in the top three let alone winning.
My vote went to Jake this year. Suspect the Lioness will win but I personally loved watching this moment #SPOTY #christmas
Would love to see Jake Wightman win. #SPOTY

Jake Wightman seems like a lovely bloke #SPOTY
Personally would have gone for Jake Wightman - that achievement will probably never be replicated. Lionesses likely to have a lot more success to come. #SPOTY
