The funeral of one of Wales' leading Paralympians, Chris Hallam MBE, will be held later today.
The athlete, from Pontypool, was in his late 40s and had been ill for some time when he died earlier this month.
Chris, a wheelchair racer, won medals in the 1988, 1992 and 1996 Games and was also successful in the pool, winning the 50m breaststroke at the World Disabled Games within years of the motorcycle accident that left him paralysed below the chest.
As well as Paralympic success, he also posted record times for the London Marathon in 1985 and 1987.
Many, including Prime Minister David Cameron, have described him as a true pioneer of disability sport.
