Weir eyes Manchester
- Updated: April 30, 2009
Double Paralympic gold medallist and London Marathon runner-up Dave Weir heads the British athletics team for next month’s BT Paralympic World Cup.
Weir, 29, beat South Africa’s Ernst Van Dyk into third place in the London Marathon at the weekend, this after the SA athlete won his eighth Boston Marathon a week previously.
Weir triumphed in the 800m and 1500m in Beijing and races again over the same distances in Manchester.
South African double amputee Oscar Pistorius, 22, will also be competing after recovering from head and facial injuries sustained in a boating accident in Johannesburg in February.
Pistorius, who won three gold medals in Beijing, will be up against local athlete Ian Jones in the T44 100 and 400m in Manchester.
Athletics is one of four sports in the Manchester competition with swimming, cycling and wheelchair basketball also taking place.
