I'd heard he was to be stripped of his medal, apparently he tested positive for WD40....

Seriously though, the bloke (and all the others competing in the games) are amazing.

Mark Webber column this week comments on Alex's wins and there is a little interview with the man him self. Ever the joker he says possibly the only reason he won is that there were no British competitors in his event.

Just back from holiday and the only news of the Paralympics I heard whilst away was Alex's medal winning performances, what a star. Nice to see that your world doesn't end when you have such major injuries. Congratulations to all the Paralympians, whether they won medals or not.
