PLAYERS: Bradley Wiggins
British cyclist Bradley Wiggins has been knighted by Queen Elizabeth II at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace that left last year's Tour de France and Olympic champion "shaking" and "uncomfortable." Wiggins was honored for services to cycling after winning seven Olympic medals and becoming the first Briton to win the Tour -- the sport's biggest event. The 33-year-old Wiggins says on Tuesday "I'm glad it's over" because "I've won a bike race, you know, and I feel a little bit inferior to everyone, really." Sir Bradley, as he is now known, was awarded the knighthood in the queen's New Year's honors list.
