National women's 100-metre record holder and double Olympic 100-metre gold medallist Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce was the overwhelming choice for Sports Woman of the Year in our sports poll.
Fraser-Pryce, who was crowned RJR Sports Foundation's Sportswoman of the Year last month, was favoured by 71.27 per cent of participants in the poll. Veronica Campbell-Brown was well back on 16 per cent, while swimmer Alia Atkinson had 10.91 per cent of respondents. There was minuscule support for cricketer Stafanie Taylor and 400-metre hurdler Kaliese Spencer.
The poll, which has a margin of error of plus or minus six per cent, was conducted between January 12 and 21, 2013 by Conroy Julian and Dr Paul Bourne. The sample size was 300 and participants were drawn from Kingston, St Andrew, St Thomas, St Catherine and Clarendon - five parishes which contain just over half of the country's population.
Note: Dr Bourne is director of the Socio-Medical Research Institute while Julian is a development communicator and convener of the Association of Media Professionals (email@example.com).
