Real Madrid midfielder Gareth Bale leads the nominations for the 2015 BBC Cymru Wales Sports Personality of the Year award.

The 26-year-old played all but three minutes of the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign that saw Wales advance to a major tournament for the first time in 57 years.

Bale scored seven goals in 10 games as Wales finished second in their group behind Belgium.

Fly-half Dan Biggar was outstanding for Wales in the 2015 Rugby World Cup and he joins Bale among the nominations.

The Ospreys star scored 56 points for Warren Gatland’s side as they reached the quarter-finals before being knocked out following a narrow defeat to South Africa.

Aled Sion Davies, who won two gold medals at the IPC World Championships, is also on the shortlist alongside taekwondo fighter Jade Jones, boxer Lee Selby, triathlete Non Stanford, cyclist Geraint Thomas and footballer Ashley Williams.
