Commonwealth Games medal winners Jodie Stimpson, Fran Halsall and Erraid Davies are among the nominees for July's Sportswoman of the Month vote which closes at midnight.

The winner of the vote will be announced on August 8, the day after voting closes - to have your say visit the voting page on www.skysports.com/sportswomen.

Here are the six nominees for July's award:

Jodie Stimpson:

The English triathlete had the honour of winning the first gold medal of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, storming clear of Canada's Kirsten Sweetland to win the individual event.

Stimpson, top-ranked in the women's field, went on to make it two gold medals two days later when she was part of England's victorious triathlon mixed relay team along with Vicki Holland and the Brownlee brothers, Alistair and Jonny.

Fran Halsall: 

The 24-year-old made it 11 Commonwealth Games medals with a haul of four in Glasgow, two of them golds.

Halsall won the 50 metres freestyle and 50 metres butterfly events and took silver medals in England's 4x100m freestyle and 4x100m medley relay teams.

Erraid Davies:

The 13-year-old made history by becoming the youngest competitor to represent Scotland at the Commonwealth Games, winning the bronze medal in the para-sport 100 metres breaststroke.

Davies, who hails from the Shetland Isles, produced a powerful finish to secure a medal but was just unable to catch winner Sophie Pascoe of New Zealand and Australia's Madeleine Scott.

Libby Clegg:

The home favourite produced one of the biggest roars during the athletics programme at Hampden Park with her victory in the T12 100 metres race.

Alongside guide runner Mikhail Huggins, Clegg romped to victory in a world-leading time of 12.20 seconds to make up for her disappointment at finishing second at London 2012.

Marianne Vos:

Women's sport has few more dominant participants than the Dutch cyclist, whose most recent victory came on Sunday in Paris when she sprinted home to win La Course by Le Tour de France.

Vos has been involved in more than 30 races this year since returning from a successful spell in mountain biking and she is yet to finish outside the top 10 - 15 of those races have ended with victory as well as overall successes at the Giro d'Italia and the Women's Tour in Britain.

Lydia Ko: 

Ko is the brightest talent the world of women's golf has seen since Michelle Wie burst on to the scene, and her latest win came in July's Marathon Classic.

The 17-year-old finished with a superb round of 65 to overturn a deficit and beat Korea's So-Yeon Ryu by a stroke for her second LPGA Tour title of the season.
