LONDON, September 4
A world record was equalled in the men's T34 200m, for cerebral palsy athletes using a wheelchair, when Walid KTILA (TUN) matched his time from the morning heats, winning in 27.98 seconds. KTILA was briefly challenged by Mohamed HAMMADI (UAE) but pulled away from the eventual silver medallist after 120m and put almost a second between himself and the man from the Emirates, who crossed the line in 28.95. Rheed McCRACKEN (AUS), just 15 and the youngest man competing in the Games athletics events, was third in 29.08.
