T44 100m final

Gold medal – Jonnie Peacock 10.99

I’m probably the luckiest guy in the world, because I shouldn’t have won like that. At the end of the day it’s about getting through the rounds and the final. It doesn’t matter what you run in the rounds, you’ve got to run it in the final. It’s about positions not times in championships.

“I’ve been capable of going quick for a while now, but I’ve had no one pushing me. Now I’ve got someone putting pressure on me, which is fantastic for Paralympic sport. There was definitely a bit of pressure leading into the race, but in all honesty I’ve always been capable of those times. The final should have been a lot quicker than that, but we’ve got the Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games on Sunday to put that straight.
