Congratulations to Roger Federer, Wimbledon champion, Olympic Silver medal winner and former tennis World Number One, who was crowned best Swiss Athlete of 2012 when he was awarded 44 percent of the votes in the final round of the Credit Suisse Sports Awards. In fact Roger also won this prize back in 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007. Well done too to Nicola Spirig, the triathlete, and Gold Medal winner in this year’s Olympics, who won the female best Swiss Athlete of the 2012, with 53 % of the votes. The awards were presented at a ceremony which took place on Sunday night in Zurich.
And in London, on the same evening, Bradley Wiggins was awarded the BBC British Sports Personality of the year. Bradley, who won the Tour de France in 2012 as well as a gold at the Olympics, had his award presented to him by the Duchess of Cambridge. Congratulations to all three amazing athletes!
