 Winner: Elizabeth Edden

 Finalists: Monty Orton, TRUFC Girls, Tamworth Boxing Girls – Georgia Keast, Georgie Belt, Patrycja Gnatowska

 Winners’ Nomination: “Lizzie has lived with a serious medical condition since the age of 11 but has never let it stop her. She was one of the best gymnasts at Tamworth Olympic Gymnastics but after contracting meningitis due to her compromised immune system she changed her sport to Pole Vaulting. Since 2012 she has risen through the rankings from 264th right up to 7th this year. She was 4th at the indoor British Championships and last year she was 3rd at the English Championships and inter-county championships. Alongside this, she has helped set up the Midlands Vaulting Academy which focuses on training children from less fortunate backgrounds to pole vault. This year the group sent 3 people to English Schools, 4 to the Mason Trophy and saw every member medal at their county championships. All of these members are either in care, from single-parent families, have medical conditions or from low-income families.”
