Bermuda

Leverock named sports personality of the year

Dwayne Leverock, Bermuda’s supersized spinner, and Teresa Perozzi - the boxer who defended her world title twice while running a business and raising her son - are the Bermuda Sun's sports personalities of the year for 2006.

Both have faced public and media scrutiny away from the sports arena, but have proved their critics wrong where it counts - on the pitch and in the ring. Leverock's battle with his weight and Perozzi's ability to juggle work, family and intense periods of training have endeared them to the public.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
