New figures show more disabled people are taking up sport in Wales nearly a year after the London Olympics and Paralympics
Welsh Olympians and Paralympians will be given a heroes' welcome this afternoon with a special ceremony held for them at the Senedd.
Day 10 of the Paralympic Games sees Nathan Stephens compete in the Javelin and swimmer Ellie Simmonds aim for her fourth medal.
A Royal Mail post box in Hay-on-Wye has been painted gold to commemorate Welsh Paralympic athlete Josie Pearson.
The 26-year-old took gold in the discus, setting three world records on her way to claiming the title.
Individual first class stamps bearing her image are also being produced.
Josie is the latest athlete to be commemorated by the Royal Mail, which has painted some of its iconic red post boxes to celebrate every gold medal won during London 2012.
Swansea-based swimmer Ellie Simmonds has brushed off her 'Paralympics Golden Girl' tag, saying: "I think every athlete has been amazing."
When asked what memory she would take away from the Games, the 17-year-old instantly replied: "The crowd... the support has been unbelievable."
Tredegar cyclist Mark Colbourne won gold in the C1 individual pursuit this afternoon.
The stamp will go on sale within the next 5 days and a post box will be painted gold in his home town tomorrow.
In Wales, around 3,500 amputees wear prosthetic limbs. 21-year-old Scott Stevens, who got his from the Artificial Limb and Appliance Centre in Swansea, now hopes to one day compete in the Paralympics.
"I realise how much I've got to make the most of what I've got," he says.
"Not that I say that I'm disadvantaged at all because if anything it's put me at an advantage. I try harder, I'm more willing to stick at things and drive to achieve all I can."
Paralympic swimmer Nyree Kindred has won a silver medal in the women's 100m backstroke S6.
It's the second medal won by a Welsh athlete on day one of the Games.
