BRITISH Paralympian David Weir made his weekend a double success at today’s Great North Run.
He was the winner of the men’s wheelchair race, his fourth victory at the event, in a time of 43:03.
He had already powered to victory in the Tyne Tunnel 2k wheelchair race on Friday night.
He said: “It was a good test to see where I’m at,” said the 34-year-old course-record holder.
“I surprised myself. I’ve only been back pushing for a couple of weeks so I’m really pleased with that time.”
