BBC Sport - Paralympians among winners at disability sport awards

Some of Britain’s young talented disabled athletes have been honoured at a ceremony in Manchester.

Among the winners at the Nationwide Disability Sports Awards were Paralympic swimming champions Ellie Simmonds and Josef Craig.

2012 Paralympians from boccia, athletics, wheelchair fencing and sitting volleyball were also among those honoured.

Other winners are hoping to be part of the GB team at the 2016 Games in Rio.

The ceremony, organised by the English Federation of Disability Sport and attended by Paralympic medallists including Jody Cundy and Shelly Woods, also honoured schools and individuals who took part in events organised by their Disability Sport Events section.
