Sports Personality: Figure skater Robin Cousins wins in 1980

As BBC Sport celebrates 60 years of Sports Personality of the Year, we visit the archives to remember the achievements of all the previous winners.

In 1980, figure skater Robin Cousins was named Sport Review's Sports Personality of the Year.

Cousins won the award after taking gold at the Lake Placid Winter Olympics, adding to the three medals he won at the World Championships in his career.

He was also the British national champion in four successive years.

BBC Sports Personality of the Year will celebrate its 60th show when the 2013 event is broadcast live from Leeds on Sunday 15 December from 1940 GMT on BBC One. Further coverage on the BBC Sport website and Radio 5 live.
