Jo Pavey wins 2014 BBC South West Sports Personality award

European champion and Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Jo Pavey has won the BBC South West Sports Personality of the Year award.

Exeter-based Pavey had the best season of her career at the age of 40, winning a major title for the first time in the 10,000m final in Zurich in August.

Ten days earlier she finished third at Glasgow 2014 after a gutsy final sprint to pip Kenya's Margaret Muriuki for third place in the 5,000m.

Pavey had missed the 2013 season after giving birth to her second child.
