Mickey Bushell has no complaints about his efforts, despite just missing out on a bronze in tonight's T53 200m.

Great Britain's T53 100m gold medallist Mickey Bushell, who finished fourth in tonight's 200m final, has admitted that he could not have done any more in this evening's race.

Bushell also said that, while a second medal would have been nice, he matched his expectations for the London Paralympics.

"I thought I could be competitive enough for a medal," Bushell said. "At the end of the day the better boys beat me, so what more can I do?

"From the heats this morning I wasn't feeling too good, but I went quicker in the final so there's not much more I could do.

"It's my first gold [that I won in 100m]. I came here to win one gold, anything more than that would have been a bonus."

Li Huzhao of China was the eventual winner of the 200m.
