The BPA tonight sent its congratulations to the three Paralympians who have made the SPOTY 2012 shortlist

Ellie Simmonds, Sarah Storey and David Weir have all made the final twelve and now will go forward to the public vote on December 16th.

BPA CEO Tim Hollingsworth said ‘To have three Paralympians on the shortlist shows just how far Paralympic sport has come in this country.

"We’re delighted for Ellie, Sarah and David that their achievements over the summer have been recognised in this way.

"The public took the ParalympicsGB team to their hearts and their support was a huge factor in our success – let’s hope that they now continue that support and vote for our Paralympians on the night’.
