HOW WE FARED
SWANSEA sent four athletes to the Olympics and 11 more to the Paralympics in London.
In total, athletes from Swansea collected 15 medals including two golds and seven silvers. If Swansea had been a country it would have come 38th out of 74 in the final Paralympic medal table.
Overall, there were more medals for Swansea than Sweden, and the city was just one behind Japan and two behind New Zealand.
Olympians, Paralympians, torchbearers and young ambassadors who helped make it a golden summer of sport for Swansea were honoured with a reception in the Grand Theatre earlier this month.

Council Leader David Phillips said: "What an amazing summer it was. It proved, as if proof was needed, that Swansea truly is a city of sport.
"The performances of athletes in sports as diverse as swimming, weight-lifting and table tennis were incredible and I'm sure there will be a new generation inspired to follow in the wake of their local heroes."
