The Irish boxing superstar has been shortlisted BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards after she was nominated for the BBC World Sports Star of the Year Award.
In response to the news, Taylor tweeted:
“The phrase humbled is overused, but I am sincerely humbled to be nominated for the BBC World Sport Star award next to these inspiring athletes.”
Taylor won Olympic gold in 2012 and has enjoyed an unbeaten record this year 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
She would be the first Irish person to win the Overseas Personality Award, though several Irish people have won the main BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award for their sporting effort in the UK.
