During the whole of December, before we enter 2015, we on HWiS will be compiling a list of the top women of 2014. This is the master list so to speak, which will be updated with each of the individual pages as we count down during December.
We base this on a mixture of things.
1) Their popularity on the site, based on hits per day.
2) Their achievements this year, so we do get the very best sportswomen of 2014. So we created an algorithim that works out their "success"
And so we compiled our list of the top Women of 2014, based on who had been featured on HWiS prior to making the list up. As we say we will post an entry roughly every day during the month of December till we get to Number 1 in time for the end of the month.
