David Weir

David Weir is one of the most successful and celebrated Para athletes in the history of the sport having made his Paralympic debut at Atlanta 1996.

He has since gone on to win ten Paralympic medals – including six golds – although he missed out on the podium at Rio 2016.

The Arsenal fan’s crowning moment came on home soil at London 2012, where he conquered a gruelling schedule of seven races in 10 days totalling 35.3 miles to win four gold medals – the T54 800m, 1500m, 5000m and marathon.

The British capital is a happy hunting ground for the ‘Weirwolf’, who has won a record-breaking eight London Marathon titles from 21 races.
