Weir aims for London Marathon record

Paralympic champ wheelchair racer David Weir is aiming for a record-breaking SEVENTH London Marathon win on Sunday.

The current wheelchair marathon record is six victories - jointly held by him and Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson.

But the 'Weirwolf' said: "I don't want to be equal with anyone. So I'd rather go for the record myself.

"It's going to be tough because everyone is going to be gunning out to beat me after what happened in London [Paralympics]."

Weir explained: "A lot of people were a bit disappointed they didn't win medals because I won them all!

He won four gold medals at London 2012 - in the T54 800m, 1,500m, 5,000m and marathon.

The athlete added: "It's going to be tough and I'm looking forward to the challenge."
