Leading Paralympians have criticised what they believe to be inconsistencies in the New Years Honours list, where successful Paralympians missed out on top honours, reports the Independent on Sunday.
Ten time gold medal dressage rider and Honorary Doctorate at Staffordshire University, Lee Pearson OBE, told the newspaper that he was "disappointed" not to have been made a Sir after his performance this summer at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
He said: "Obviously, 10 gold, one silver and one bronze just isn't enough. I'm disappointed because I do feel I've given a lot to Paralympic sport and equestrianism. I think 10 gold medals is quite an achievement."
Lee Pearson currently lives in Cheddleton, Staffordshire.
