Sports Personality: Jonathan Edwards wins in 1995

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 1995, triple jumper Jonathan Edwards was named Sports Personality of the Year.

Edwards capped an unbeaten season by breaking the world record twice at the World Athletics Championships in Gothenburg.

He became the first person to jump 60 feet, managing a distance of 18.43 metres.

Edwards retired in 2003 after a medal-laden career which included gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

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.
