Andy Murray - SPOTY 2016

Le Maitre Events were once again at BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year, designing, supplying and firing the effects which this year included Gerbs, Mines, Low Smoke and Glitter.

Congratulations to Andy Murray who won the Award for a record third time.

As he finished his acceptance speech from his training base in Miami, Le Maitre’s silver glitter showered over the stage.

Andy Murray is the first recipient of the prestigious award to win it three times, following an amazing 2016 which saw him claim his second Wimbledon title, retain his Olympic title, and gain his first ATP World Tour crown, contributing to him becoming the world number one men’s tennis player.

Triathlete Alistair Brownlee was runner-up and show jumper Nick Skelton third.

Invictus Choir SPOTY

As swimmer Michael Phelps took to the stage to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, Le Maitre’s Gerbs and red Mines lit the stage, and low smoke filled the stage as the Invictus Choir, accompanied by Gareth Malone, sang to honour those sporting icons who have died this year.
