Speacial Award winners: Paddy Barnes, Alan Campbell, Peter Chambers, Richard Chamabers and Michael Conlan

It seemed like the world stopped when the Olympics were being staged in London in 2012 and Northern Ireland played its part in this wonderful celebration of sport with spectacular performances on the water and in the ring.

For instance, who could forget Alan Campbell's tears after he bravely rowed to a bronze in the single sculls event? It was a monumental effort from the Coleraine man.

Coleraine had much to cheer in London because the Chambers brothers, Richard and Peter, performed brilliantly to earn themselves silver medals as part of Team GB's lightweight four. They were just inches away from gold.

It wasn't just on Eton Dorney lake that Northern Ireland delivered – the magnificent Paddy Barnes performed supremely in the boxing ring.

Barnes created history by becoming the first Irish boxer to win two medals at the Olympics, winning bronze in the light flyweight division.

Paddy, Alan, Richard and Peter will go hunting for more Olympic glory at Rio 2016.

Not to be outdone fellow Belfast man Michael Conlan also won a bronze medal with some outstanding boxing.

All delivered Special moments.

Paddy, Michael, Alan, Richard and Peter will go hunting for more Olympic glory at Rio 2016.
