Yorkshire's gold medal-winning Paralympic archer Danielle Brown says her family have played a major role in her success.
The athlete, originally from Lothersdale, held her nerve in a tense Women's Individual Compound - Open final which went down to the very last arrow.
Danielle has a neurological condition which affects her lower limbs, and says her parents kept her interest in sport going.
She said: "For our holidays, we'd go camping, walking, cycling, running and when I became disabled and couldn't walk my parents bought a big canoe so we could go canoeing in the Lake District. I've really got them to thank for a lot of it."
As ParalympicsGB's 20th gold medallist, it means Danielle can now see her face reproduced on a Royal Mail stamp.
The stamps will be available to buy at more than 500 Post Office branches.
A postbox in Skipton has also be painted gold to celebrate her achievement.
