Paralympian discus champ Aled Davies has said he would like to compete against able-bodied athletes
More disabled people in Wales are taking part in sport than ever, according to new figures.
Grassroots investment is credited with the boost along with the Paralympic legacy, says Disability Sport Wales (DSW).
It says that the challenge now is for disabled people to be included in mainstream sport.
The figures were released as 600 people take part in the 10th annual Wheelchair Sport Spectacular in Cardiff.
DSW executive director Jon Morgan said he welcomed the rise in figures, which had been a trend for the past 10 years.
But he said more needed to be done with the “insport” programme to include disabled sportspeople in the mainstream.
