Olympians lead New Year honours

Whilst I don’t really like the honours system, I can just about see why Matthew Pinsent (4 Olympic Gold Medals over 12 years) and Tanni Grey-Thompson (11 Olympic Gold Medals over 16 years) became Sir and Dame, but why did Kelly Holmes (2 Olympic Gold Medals over 1 summer) also become a Dame?
