Two of Argentina's greatest Paralympians have been honoured for their achievements 50 years on from claiming a combined total of six medals at Tokyo 1964.
Noemi Tortul and Susana Beatriz Olarte were recognised at a special ceremony during the first Congress of Sport and Tourism in Rosario.
Olarte's haul in Tokyo included gold in the women's shot put B event, silver medals in the javelin and club throw and bronze in the wheelchair racing competition.
Tortul claimed two bronze medals in 1964 in the javelin and shot put C disciplines.
Four years later she went on to secure javelin and shot put bronze once again in Tel Aviv, while also picking up bronze in the discus and silver as part of the Argentine women's wheelchair basketball team that lost out to hosts Israel in the final.
At Heidelberg 1972, Tortul confirmed her status as one of the greatest Paralympians in her country's history after being part of the wheelchair basketball squad that defeated Jamaica in the gold medal game.
Meanwhile, Olarte joined Tortul on the wheelchair basketball squad that claimed silver in 1968, while also picking up four more medals at those Games in Tel Aviv.
She took silver in javelin for the second successive Games but demonstrated her prowess by claiming three gold medals in the discus, club throw and shot put events.
