HOLLIE DOYLE finished third in the BBC’s “Sports Personality of the Year” award after her breakthrough in 2020

The 24-year-old jockey, the only woman on the shortlist, finished behind Jordan Henderson and winner Lewis Hamilton

Doyle won 33-1 a few days ago before a tidal wave of support drowned their chances

She went back to 9: 4 – and the second favorite behind F1 World Champion Hamilton – before being voted third

It’s still a notable feat for the athlete who had the smallest national profile on the six-person shortlist

She was also the smallest physique, standing only 5 feet and weighing 8 – but could lift more than twice her body weight

One of the highlights of their incredible year was driving a historic brace on British Champions Day at Ascot

She was also the first woman to record a five-timer when she won five races in one day at 899-1 at Windsor

Doyle is booked with five runners in Lingfield on Monday, the first being Pearl Specter, a 16-1 shot in 12th Round30

At the awards, Doyle said, “I know this year has been amazing, but I don’t want this to be my best year

“I want bigger and better things Every athlete who gets a taste of success wants more, so I want to keep the revs up and keep plowing”
