Weir takes fourth gold as Games draw to close

David Weir won his fourth gold medal of the London Games, taking the T54 marathon title on the Mall after emerging from the leading pack. The 33-year-old, who had already won 800m, 1,500m and 5,000m titles, was initially unaware he had prevailed. "I didn't know where the finishing line was," he said. "That's why I looked moody. I didn't know if it was the first or second line. Then I saw the lead car stop down the end of the Mall, so I thought, 'Maybe it's down there,' because there was no tape. It was tough, the toughest race I've ever had in my life."

Weir's feat, on the final day of the Games, helped him match Tanni Grey-Thompson as the only British track and field athletes to win four medals at a single Paralympics. Weir now has six golds overall, along with two silver and two bronze.

There was also success in the T54 women's marathon for Briton Shelly Woods, above, who won silver. The 26-year-old finished a second behind the American Shirley Reilly after disappointment earlier in the week on the track. MORE
