Triple gold-medal winning paralympic equestrian Sophie Christiansen has been awarded her OBE by Prince Charles. She said the award would take pride of place with her gold medals.
"I like to look at my medals and for them to be out for everyone to see, particularly young kids," she said. "I have found that for people to be able to touch and see a Paralympic gold medal is a really special thing so I make sure that I take it in to schools for children to see.
"The slogan for the Games was to inspire a generation and trying to do that is an important part of the legacy."Christiansen said she was not nervous when collecting her latest award because being involved in sport has made her more and more confident over the years.
