Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntyre have been nominated for Team of the Year in the Sunday Times Sportswomen of the Year Awards.

The British Sailing Team pair received the nod for the prestigious award in recognition of a stellar season that saw them crowned 470 world champions in the Olympic venue of Enoshima in August as well as winning a string of medals including silver at the Olympic test event.

The Sunday Times Sportswomen of the Year awards have been running since 1988 and celebrate Britain's female sporting heroes from grassroots sports to elite competition.

Mills, from Cardiff, Wales, and McIntyre, from Hayling Island, Hants, will face stiff competition for the Team of the Year award.

Other nominees in the category include the England women's football team, the England women's netball team, the England women's rugby union team, Britain's modern pentathlon squad and Europe's Solheim Cup team.

Voting closes at 12pm on Monday November 18. The winners will be announced at a star-studded awards ceremony at News UK's London offices on the evening of Thursday November 21.
