Weekend Brit watch
Saturday 08 September 2012
World record holder Nathan Stephens is the man to beat in the men's F57/58 javelin final starting today at 7.02pm. The double amputee narrowly missed out on bronze in Beijing but is expected to take gold in London.
The Beijing double medallist is geared up for gold as he defends his title in the men's T1-2 road race at Brands Hatch this morning. Stone, who took bronze in the time trial, showed his form by winning gold in this year's Para-cycling Road World Cup.
The nine-time Paralympic medallist goes for his fourth gold of this Games in the T54 marathon starting at 11.30am tomorrow, having confirmed his status as the world's best wheelchair athlete with successes in the 800m, 1,500m and 5,000m. He faces another challenge from Australian Kurt Fearnley over the gruelling 26 miles, but Weir, a six-time London marathon winner, hopes to have his crowning moment outside Buckingham Palace.
