Last night's Sports Personality of the Year show was a rip off. The BBC had been publicising the fact the Princess Anne had won the award before and it was unlikely that anyone else was going to win apart from Zara Phillips.
Unlike the other competitors for the award Zara was born into money and therefore opportunity where everyone else had to train to be good at their sport. Take Beth Tweddle for instance she had been training since the age of 7!!! She was our first Gold medal winner in Gymnastics. I'm sure her parents had to scrimp and save to send her for training to be as good as she could be. Where a member of the Royal family wouldn't have to do anything just take some money from the family fortune. Phil Taylot has become a Darts legend and that takes some real skill not just sitting on top of a horse going over jumps.
In my opinion the 'public' made the wrong choice. Everyone else needs skills and talent to do their sport Zara Phillips does not.
