A prediction

Whether you think it right or wrong (personally I don't mind it at all) but will be plenty of honours awarded New Year's Honours list ro our olympians and paralympians. I only hope that coaches and all the others who made the success possible are properly recognised as well. Still here re my predictions for knight- or damehoods:

David Brailsford the performance director of British cycling and one of the driving forces behind British dominnce of track cycling in recent years

Bradley Wiggins the first British Toure de France winner who also won his seventh olympic medl and his fourth gold.

Ben Anslie who won his fourht consecutive Olympic sailing gold medal. He had also won siver in Atlanta. His medal tally means that he is the most successful ever olympic sailor.

 Given team GB's continuing succes in rowing performance director David Tanner may also be knighted

Srah Storey added four gold medals to the two cycling golds she won in Beijing and the 5 golds, 8 silvers and 3 bronzes she won in swimming at the Barcelona,  Atlanta Sydney and Athens games. She is now our most successful paralympian

David Wir who won 4 golds in London dding to the 2 golds 1 silver and 1 bronze he won in Beijings and the silver and bronze he won in Athens

I don't think Mo Farah or Jessica Ennis will receive a knight- or dame-hood this time. If they retain titles in Rio then they will be shoo-ins. Ellie Simmonds is too young.

I would put money on Sebastian Coe becoming a Companion of Honour

As for Chris Hoy he is already a Knight batchelor. Give him another knighthood?

No Victoria Pendleton?

Maybe in recognition of her whole career

Those are certainly very notable achievements.
