Sir Bob Kerslake said:
“The success of the Olympics so far is a testimony to the dedication and hard work of many, including thousands of civil servants. The Games presented a unique test to the Civil Service and our response illustrated the skill and adaptability that makes the UK Civil Service world class.
“I am pleased to announce this new Olympic Award which will recognise some of those involved with the games, not only those civil servants who worked directly on delivering the Games, but also those who went the extra mile outside of their day to day jobs to contribute to the success of the Olympics.”
