Andy Murray, OBE

Tennis player

Andy Murray attributes his sporting drive to losing at tennis to his older brother as a child. This fiercely competitive Scot has fought to boost the country’s standing on the world tennis circuit, capturing our craving for a British Wimbledon Champion. His emotional exposure after a harrowing Wimbledon final in 2012, swiftly followed by an Olympic gold medal, boosted the nation’s confidence. Winning the US Open in 2013, Murray became the first British male since 1936 to collect a Grand Slam and is the only man in history to win Olympic gold and the US Open in the same calendar year. Murray’s breakthrough triumph in 2013 as Wimbledon Champion earned him the esteemed title of Sports Personality of the Year 2013.
