Lord Coe described the list as "a wonderful end to this unique Olympic and Paralympic Year".
– Lord Coe, London 2012 Chairman
It recognises the achievements of our sportsmen and women who inspired the nation.
This year's list also recognises those behind the scenes at Locog (the London 2012 organisers) for outstanding leadership and delivery of the world's largest sporting events.
I am incredibly proud of them all and our partners who made Britain proud this summer.
