Blade runner Oscar Pistorius and five times Olympian swimmer Mark Foster also feature in the exhibition.

Artist Ben Dearnley said "My Olympic work focuses on the core strengths of each Olympic and Paralympic athlete I have worked with, capturing something of the essence of what it is that makes them the best in the world at what they do."
