Ohuruogu Is Sportswoman Of 2013

Nigerian born British athlete Christine Ohuruogu has been named Sunday Times & Sky Sports Sportswoman of the outgoing year 2013.
The 400m champion was the first British woman to win two Athletics World Championship crowns when she clinched gold in Moscow in August.
“It was such a tough category”, said Ohuruogu. “It’s great we have women who are excelling. I am genuinely shocked but I’m really happy”.
Cyclist Becky James was given the Young Sportswoman of the Year award.
Ohuruogu beat James, dressage rider Charlotte Dujardin, cricketer Heather Knight, skeleton bobsledder Shelley Rudman and triathlete Non Stanford to the top award in London.
The 29-year-old later confirmed she intends to compete at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
“I think we’ll go to Rio, that’s the plan”, Ohuruogu said. “Obviously, I have to stay injury free. I love what I do. Me and my coach have a great time training and 400m right now is a great event to be in and we have great talent coming through”.
