400 nominations were received from more than 35 sports and the judging process was a difficult task, as confirmed by Chair of the Judging Panel Joslyn Hoyte Smith. She said: "2012 has been an incredible season for sport in the UK, not simply for the inspiring performances at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, but for our success in cycling, golf and tennis. The number and strength of the nominations for this year’s UK Coaching Awards has made the task of judging more difficult than ever. In particular, we’ve had to compare coaches who have worked with multiple athletes, against those who have worked with the same athlete over a number of Olympiads.”
