Archie Qualtrough won Sports Personality of The Year as well as Young Sportsman of The Year in recognition of his success.

On the night Archie spoke of the hard work he puts into training. He said: “I train everyday for about two hours. If not hitting balls then I am doing gym work to build up my strength and fitness.”
