UK PM: officials face athletic honours overload
Mon, 13 Aug 2012 7:07a.m.
Britain's prime minister says the officials charged with doling out the country's knighthoods and other honours will have their work cut out for them in the wake of the London Olympics.
David Cameron told journalists that the Britain's huge haul of gold medals in the 2012 Games means there will be plenty of options when deciding who Queen Elizabeth II will reward in her semiannual honours list.
Sportsmen and sportswomen are staples of the honors list, which is intended to recognize people from all walks of life for merit, gallantry or service.
Olympians who have already received knighthoods include champion rower Sir Steve Redgrave and Sir Chris Hoy, the Scottish cyclist who won his sixth career gold medal in London.
