Olympic Gold Medalist Mo Farah Tops List Of Britain's Greatest Sporting Champions
Olympic champion long-distance runner MO FARAH "has been voted Britain's greatest ever sporting champion" ahead of former rower STEVEN REDGRAVE and cyclist BRADLEY WIGGINS, according to Kaya Burgess of the LONDON TIMES. Olympic heptathlete JESSICA ENNIS-HILL "was ranked in fourth." ANDY MURRAY, DAVID BECKHAM and CHRIS HOY were also in the top ten, which was completed by BOBBY MOORE, KELLY HOLMES and the ice-skating pairing of JAYNE TORVILL and CHRISTOPHER DEAN. The poll was "conducted by Great British Racing." There "were only three footballers listed in the top 50," plus former ManU Manager ALEX FERGUSON (LONDON TIMES, 10/12).
