LONDON, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- British sprinter Jonnie Peacock set a 10.9-second world record for the 100-meter distance at the Paralympics in London.
"This is absolutely amazing," Peacock said. "I'd like to have run a little bit quicker, but I did enough to hold on."
Peacock said he was proud to race at the packed Olympic stadium.
"To go in front of 80,000, it was crazy," he said. "This is the first event I've come to where I've not been nervous.
Pistorius, who won the gold medal in the event in 2008, congratulated Peacock.
"As I pass the baton over to Jonnie, I wish him all the best," he said.
