Arsenal and England player Steph Houghton has been nominated for the William Hill Sportswoman of the Year award.
The utility player has been selected on the shortlist thanks in part to her heroics at this summer's Olympic Games in London. Playing at left back, she was Team GB's top scorer at the tournament, netting in every group game including the winning goal against Brazil at Wembley Stadium.
However Steph faces stiff competition for the award as she is up against a number of other Olympic and Paralympic stars including several gold medal winners. The ten nominees are:
Hannah Cockroft, Beth Tweddle, Jessica Ennis, Hayley Turner, Ellie Simmonds, Victoria Pendleton, Steph Houghton, Laura Trott, Sarah Storey, Laura Robson.
The William Hill Sportswoman of the Year award was introduced in 2011 to celebrate female achievement in sport a year when the BBC did not include a single female sportsperson in their shortlist of ten. Over 46,000 votes were received and Hayley Turner narrowly pipped Jessica Ennis to become the inaugural winner of the award.
If you wish to vote for the award, a coupon is available in all 2,370 William Hill shops between Saturday 24th November and Sunday 2nd December. Voting is also available online at http://bit.ly/2012swoty.
Results will be announced on Tuesday 4th December and the winner will receive a VIP trip to the William Hill King George chase on Boxing Day at Kempton Park, a £1,000 free bet on the big race and acceptance of the WH SWOTY trophy.
