The cream of the region's disabled sporting stars have been honoured for their efforts at the Midlands Disabled Sports Awards.
Minister for Sport Richard Carbon and Leslie Law MBE, the 2004 Olympic gold medal holder in three-day eventing, attended the ceremony which was organised by npower and the English Federation of Disability Sports.
The event celebrated the achievements of athletes with all kinds of physical, sensory and learning disabilities.
There were ten award categories recognising competitors of all ages and from grass roots level through to Paralympic standard. Lee Pearson OBE collected the Npower award for his outstanding contribution to disability sports. The equestrian dressage rider won six gold medals in Greece.
Debbie Brennan took the sportswoman of the year title, Nigel Murray was named sportsman of the year, Claire Cashmore and James Whale clinched the young achievers prize while Paul Hunt was named coach of the year.
The Great Britain men's wheelchair basketball team scooped the team of the year award and Stuart Wilson Special School also picked up an award for its contribution to disability sport.
As well as disabled athletes, the event also recognised the contribution that volunteers make to disabled sport, with John and Betty Nicholls winning the volunteer award for their work helping disabled people to access activities.
Jenny Simmons, community relations executive for npower, said: "Through npower's partnership with the EFDS we have been able to give thousands of Midlanders the chance to take part in disability sport."
