She was recognised for those performances when named as BBC Sports Personality of the Year and Laureus World Sports Woman.

Her trip to the island will include a visit to sponsors SMP Partners in the morning, the Children's Centre in the afternoon and a black tie dinner at Mount Murray where she will be the guest of honour.
