When Surrey Life spoke to David Weir in the build-up to the Paralympic Games, he told us hed be happy with one gold medal on his home track.
A little training in Richmond Park and a few months later, the Weirwolf, as many have taken to calling him, crossed the line to take his fourth gold medal.
It was a truly superhuman effort from the Wallington star, which has lifted him firmly to the top table in the British sporting world, and cemented the most memorable Paralympic Games to date.
At the 2008 Games, the 33-year-old was Great Britains only gold medallist on the track, but in London many more got a taste for the top.
With thoughts now turning to the legacy of this Games, David is also vice president of the charity www.getkidsgoing.com who support our Paralympic stars of the future.
