Britain's Jonnie Peacock produced a dynamic display of sprinting to take the Paralympics T44 100m crown.
The world record holder, 19, powered away in the last 30 metres to finish in a Paralympic record of 10.90 seconds.
American Richard Browne finished second, with South Africa's Arnu Fourie third and Oscar Pistorius fourth.
Pistorius, gold medal winner in 2008, paid tribute to Peacock's performance and said: "As I pass the baton over to Jonnie, I wish him all the best."
"This is absolutely amazing," Peacock, from Cambridge, told BBC Radio 5 live. "I'd like to have run a little bit quicker, but I did enough to hold on.
Peacock, who lost his right leg below the knee after contracting meningococcal septicaemia at the age of five, said his victory in front of a packed crowd at the Olympic Stadium would live with him forever.
"To go in front of 80,000, it was crazy," the Lee Valley-based athlete said. "This is the first event I've come to where I've not been nervous.
"To hear the crowd chant my name was amazing. That's going to live with me forever. I could not have wished for better.
