Golden girl Ellie Simmonds is set for a double celebration after being handed a place on Birmingham's Broad Street Walk of Stars and listed as one of the nominations for the prestigious BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.
The Aldridge swimmer will be added to the famous Brum landmark on December 6 at a special ceremony at Edgbaston cricket ground.
Broad Street Business Improvement District chief Mike Olley said of Ellie: "She's a real sporting heroine and we have wanted to include a tribute to Ellie on the Walk of Stars for some time.
"We are delighted she has accepted."
Ellie was also revealed as one of 11 Olympic or Paralympic champions on an impressive list in the running for the BBC sports prize.
Champion golfer Rory McIlroy is the only star on the 12-strong list who did not compete at London 2012.
Teenager Ellie, who was born in Walsall but trains in Swansea, emerged as a sporting star at the Beijing Paralympics when she was only 13, winning two gold medals.
She added two more golds, a silver and a bronze in London, where she was one of the star attractions.
Cyclist Bradley Wiggins is the bookmakers' odds-on favourite for the BBC title ahead of Mo Farah, double gold medallist in the 5,000m and 10,000m at London and Jessica Ennis.
All nominations were chosen by a panel of experts and former champions.
The main award will be chosen by public vote and announced at the Sports Personality of the Year show from London's ExCeL centre on December 16.
