Britain's Olympians and Paralympians get their own honours list, which recognizes the individuals' personal bravery, achievement, or service to the UK. Previously, former Olympians were only included in the New Year's Honours.
Following the Olympic games, rumors were that some of Britain's Olympic heroes would miss out on honors under the normal Whitehall rules, according to which one athlete is awarded a knighthood, with four Commanders, 68 Officers and 134 Members of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
Despite the change in the rules, the Honours will be decided by a Whitehall committee, not the government.
