David Weir is one of the most successful and celebrated para-athletes in the history of the sport. 20 years on from making his Paralympic debut, Weir will star in his fifth appearance at a Games aiming to add to his 10 medals, which includes six golds.
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 capital is a happy hunting ground for the ‘Weirwolf’ winning a record-equalling six London Marathon titles. The hunger remains as strong as ever for Weir, who underlined his credentials in 2016 by winning four titles in Grosseto, which will fill the six-time Paralympic champion with a great deal of confidence heading into Rio.
