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 giant Paralympics symbol has been erected outside Cardiff City Hall ahead of the 2012 Paralympic Games.
The Agitos - the Paralympic symbol of movement - is the first of five sets to launch in the UK and the biggest that have been installed to date.
They replace the giant Olympic rings that featured ahead of the Games.
With the London Olympics now over all eyes turn to the Paralympics in thirteen days time. Wales is hosting a number of pre-games training camps and today the Australian athletics squad got together in Cardiff.
And despite many having seen games all over the world they've been hugely impressed by the facilites and welcome here.
It's been announced that one of four Paralympic flames will be lit at the summit of Snowdon.
In May, the Olympic torch was carried to the peak by mountaineer, Sir Chris Bonnington.
The Paralympic flame will begin its journey on August 22nd, before travelling to Cardiff, and then on to the Olympic Stadium.
Welsh cyclist Rachel Morris may now miss the upcoming London Paralympic Games. She was injured when her hand-cycle was hit by a car while taking part in a time trial. The 33-year-old from Milford Haven suffered whiplash and shoulder injuries in the incident last week.
“This has totally screwed me up,” she said. “I feel like everything I’ve worked for has been taken away. I can’t imagine not being there, but I know how long it has taken me to recover from this type of injury before, and it was longer than I now have before the Games.”
Rachel was named in the Team GB Paralympic cycling squad in June, but is now a real doubt for the Games next month. She's been to see the British team doctor in Manchester for an assessment, and started the process of getting her bike replaced, after a wheel was destroyed in the crash.
A former Paralympic Gold-medallist from Bridgend will receive an MBE for services to disabled people today. Neil Robinson is now the coach of Great Britain's Paralympic table tennis team. He'll be honoured by the Princess Royal at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
He competed at six Paralympic Games, from 1988 to 2008, winning seven medals in all. His gold came in the men's Team Class 3 event with teammate James Rawson.
When included on the Queen's New Year's Honours List, he said: "It makes me feel immensely proud. When we received the news I really got a good warm glow, a real sense of pride that I'd been recognised for something that I have been involved in for so many years."
