Slightly ropey footage from my camcorder (including the moment when the entir crowd jumped to their feet with 200 metres to go). The noise was immense, with the 80,000 strong crowd shouting him on the whole way.

Athletics - Men's 1500m - T54 Final - London 2012 Paralympic Games

GOLD WEIR David GBR Great Britain
SILVER WAHORAM Prawat THA Thailand
BRONZE 2482 KIM Gyu Dae KOR Republic of Korea

LONDON, September 4
Wheelchair racer David WEIR (GBR) confirmed his position as one of the personalities of London 2012 as he defended his 1500m crown by copying the tactics that took him to victory in the T54 men's 5000m.
WEIR, 32, came home in 3:12.09 after covering the last lap in 44.84 secs. Prawat WAHORAM (THA) took the silver medal in 3:12.32, finishing almost exactly a wheelchair length behind WEIR, while KIM Gyu Dae (KOR) was third in 3:12.57. The 1500m and 5000m world record holder Marcel HUG (SUI) finished out of the medals and came home fourth.

I'm shocked really because the field in the 1500m this year has been so strong and I've only won a couple of races, so coming into this race I was probably the fourth fastest on paper. - David Weir

LONDON, 7 September
Wheelchair racer ZHANG Lixin (CHN) successfully defended his Beijing
2008 T54 men's 400m title in 46.88m, and although he was nearly two
seconds slower than his Paralympic record of four years ago, the best of
the rest of the world were still left trailing in his wake.

I was pleased with my performance and results. I thank the spectators
and crowds for the inspiration. The training was really difficult and
hard but it's totally worth it when I won this medal. - ZHANG Lixin said
