Taekwondo world champion Sarah Stevenson says several British women should have made the Sports Personality of the Year Award shortlist.
The 28-year-old, who took time out to care for her terminally ill parents during 2011, thinks she will never get a better chance to make the list.
Stevenson claimed gold at May's World Championships in Korea.
"I think I and a lot of other world champion female athletes do deserve to be on it," she said.
