Weir continues relentless pursuit of quadruple gold

Gazette Series: David Weir receives his medal David Weir receives his medal

David Weir continued his relentless pursuit of quadruple gold in London by making it three out of three with yet another masterful ride.

The wheelchair racer has established himself as the hero of the Olympic Stadium in the same way Mo Farah did at the Olympics, with confident, stylish and tactically-superb racing.

And the 'Weirwolf' was at his imperious best as he devoured a world-class field to deafening roars from the enthralled capacity crown, adding the 800m crown to his 1500m and 5,000m titles.

Weir, who has the marathon left to come on Sunday, now even has his own battle cry thanks to the werewolf howls his team-mates have developed, adapted from the rock song Werewolves Of London by Warren Zevon.
