It was an explosive night for the Paralympic hosts on Thursday. Nineteen-year-old Jonnie Peacock of Great Britain stealing the show in the men’s 100 metres up against world Parlaympic icon - Oscar Pistorious.

In the early stages, the sprinters were neck-and-neck. However, with the finish line approaching, Peacock who came into the Games as the world record holder, showed no regard for reputations storming home to win in 10.90, a new Paralympic record. Only America’s Richard Browne got close to the Briton, claiming silver in 11.03. Pistorius, the defending champion, was never in contention, finishing fourth behind fellow South African and room-mate Arnu Fourie.
