A shortlist of three contenders has been announced for the 2013 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award.
Athlete Dina Asher-Smith , shooter Amber Hill and golfer Charley Hull are in contention for the prize.

They made the final cut, revealed on the Blue Peter television show, from a longer list of 10 candidates.
The winner, chosen by an expert panel, will be named during the 60th edition of the Sports Personality show, which is broadcast live from Leeds on Sunday.

Footballer Wayne Rooney, tennis star Andy Murray and diver Tom Daley are among previous winners on the roll of honour.
At 17, Asher-Smith became the second youngest female athlete in history to win a medal at the World Athletics Championships as Great Britain’s women secured bronze in the 4x100m relay.

Aged just 15, Hill became the youngest winner of a senior World Cup in skeet shooting and finished the season ranked number one senior in Great Britain and number five in the world.
