London Marathon 2011: Wheelchair Race Results

April 17, 2011

Britain’s David Weir produced a commanding performance to win his fifth wheelchair London Marathon title.

The 31-year-old from Surrey moved ahead of Swiss rival Heinz Frei in the final 300 metres during an exciting finish.

Weir, who won three golds at the IPC World Championships in Christchurch in January, suffered two punctures in last year’s race but still finished third.

Meanwhile, Briton Shelley Woods was beaten on the line by American Amanda McGrory in the women’s event.

The pair, along with Sandra Graf and Tatyana McFadden all turned into The Mall together.

But McGrory and Woods went clear of the other two before the American, who won the Paris marathon last week, pipped the Briton by about half a wheel.
