In the 200m T42 sprint at the 2012 IPC Athletics European Championships, Richard Whitehead, a double above-the-knee amputee, smashed his own world record he set last month by more than six tenths of a second en route to winning gold in a time of 24.93. Denmark's Daniel Jorgensen finished second and Iceland's Helgi Sveinsson placed third.
