The BBC has announced the 10 nominees for the 2011 Sports Personality of the Year Award.
Chrissie Wellington and Alistair Brownlee were both absent from the list, chosen by a range of newspapers and magazines across the UK.
The list, which can be viewed here, has immediately been criticised for its lack of female participants, with Chrissie, Keri-Anne Payne, Rebecca Adlington and the ITU World Champion, Helen Jenkins, all absent.
Chrissie has tweeted, "No women in @bbcspoty top ten. Its not about me, its about the need to celebrate achievements of so many female GBR athletes. Disgraceful."
