Cyclist Laura Trott will be made an OBE for services to her sport following her exploits in the velodrome last summer, when she won two gold medals at her first Olympics.
The 21-year-old, who was born with a collapsed lung and only took up sport on the advice of doctors, repeatedly smashed the world record on the way to the team pursuit title alongside Dani King and Joanna Rowsell, before standing atop the podium again after winning the Omnium two days later.
