Jonny Wilkinson leads BSBA nominations

12th April 2012

Jonny Wilkinson's autobiography is leading the nominations for this year's British Sports Book Awards, with the book shortlisted in three categories.

Jonny: My Autobiography charts the player's rise from junior rugby to international superstardom and is in contention to win rugby book of the year, autobiography/biography of the year and the award for best publicity campaign.

He is one of two authors to be nominated in three categories, with Ronald Reng's Life Too Short: The Tragedy of Robert Enke also up for the biography and best publicity awards, as well as the prize for best football book.

The British Sports Book Awards are now in their tenth year and recognise the finest sports-based works of fiction and non-fiction published in the last year.

This year's ceremony will take place on May 21st, after which each individual category winner will be entered in an online public vote to determine the overall British sports book of the year.

Nick Hornby will also be presented with an award for outstanding contribution to sports writing at the event, 20 years after the publication of his acclaimed autobiographical book Fever Pitch.
