XMAS WATCH: British Eurosport celebrates Britain’s 2012 stars with three special programmes‏

In the build-up to the Sports Personality of the Year awards this Sunday night, British Eurosport will pay tribute to four of the shortlisted contenders in three special programmes dedicated to their astonishing achievements.

British Eurosport’s comprehensive coverage of cycling, tennis and the London 2012 Olympic Games this year meant that they captured some of the defining moments of the sporting year, featuring British stars Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah, Andy Murray and Bradley Wiggins.

Viewers have an opportunity to relive their magical moments this week, all in high definition on British Eurosport HD.

First up, Eurosport takes a look back at Andy Murray’s extraordinary win against Novak Djokovic in the final of the US Open back in September.

The victory ended Britain’s 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam singles champion and crowned a remarkable year for the Scot in which he also took home a gold medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Following that programme, Eurosport will revisit one of the unforgettable memories of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

On a glorious ‘Super Saturday’, the middle Saturday of the Games, Team GB delivered three gold medals in what London 2012 chairman Lord Sebastian Coe described as the “greatest day” of sport he had ever witnessed.

There will be a chance to re-watch those unprecedented three British gold medals in 45 minutes, from Jessica Ennis in the heptathlon, Greg Rutherford in the long jump and Mo Farah storming to that historic victory in the 10,000m.

Last, but certainly not least, Eurosport will screen Bradley Wiggins: Tour de Force, a special programme dedicated to man who became the first ever British rider to win cycling’s greatest road race – the Tour de France.

‘Wiggo’ later went on to become the most decorated Olympian in the country’s history after his gold in the Olympic time-trial.

The three programmes will be shown back-to-back on Saturday, December 15, on British Eurosport, plus you can catch them at various times across British Eurosport’s Christmas schedules.

Those 16 unforgettable days in London seem a long time ago now but Eurosport viewers have an opportunity to revisit some of those amazing moments with a raft of highlights shows over Christmas focussing on selected Olympic sports.

Aside from the athletics, there’s an opportunity to relive action from swimming, equestrian, diving, gymnastics, cycling (both track and road), triathlon and rowing.

In a separate programme, British Eurosport will also be showing a special behind-the-scenes look at how British brothers Alistair and Jonny Brownlee prepared for the Olympic Games.
