Mickey Bushell said he was delighted to win gold in the men's 100 T53.
The race was fantastic. It went a lot better than I thought. The crowd were fantastic. That was the big point for me. They definitely pushed me on.
Gold was the only thing I wanted, really, I knew I had to work for it, and it’s been a long, hard four years. Last night I watched Dave Weir and as he crossed the line I was bouncing off the walls in my room. I didn’t know what to do. He’s been a massive for me, as a team mate. He’s been there for me, and he was in Beijing even with all the stuff he had to deal with. He’s a fantastic guy and a great role model, too.
