Paul Henderson, Sail Canada Councillor of Honour and former President of the International Sailing Federation, has been selected to receive the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal following selection by the Canadian Olympic Committee's Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal Nomination Committee.

The award recognises exceptional work within the Canadian high-performance sport community.

Canadian Olympic Committee President Marcel Aubut said of the award winners, "We owe so much to those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to advance sport excellence in Canada, it is a true privilege to be able to shine a spotlight on these 41 heroes who have given so much to Canadian sport and asked so little in return."
