The Rio Paralympics get underway today and Lincoln’s Sophie Wells is going for gold in the dressage.
Sophie pocketed three medals at London 2012 and the Victorian Penfold post box in the cathedral quarter was painted gold in her honour after her efforts in the capital.
Janet Inman, Chief Executive Officer of Lincolnshire Sport said: “We are so proud of all our athletes.
“They are an inspiration and that’s shown by the surge in interest in sports’ activities every four years.”
