Flash Interviews - Men 200m Wheelchair

Gold MedallistDavid WEIR, GBR
"I can't believe I am a double world champion here. It just feels great. With all the support and cheering the crowd was making us even faster."

"I have been working on bends and that went well. The start wasn't very good but I knew I am strong at the end."

"I will be racing these same guys in a couple of weeks and that is going to be even harder. The track is not as fast as this one."

Silver Medallist - Kenny VAN WEEGHEL, NED
"I am happy I got the silver, although I would have been better to win. The wind was easy and I didn't make mistakes on the bend. But I should have been able to do better on the final straight."

"I still have more to give for the future."
Bronze Medallist - Supachai KOYSUB, THA
"The time wasn't good. In the paralympics in Sydney I set the present WR. But now I don't have as much time to train. I am aiming to break the WR at the Paralympics in Beijing."

"I enjoyed being here. I want to thank everybody for taking care of us."
