Anthony Stephens reveals that his performances in the London Paralympics have exceeded his own expectations.

Great Britain swimmer Anthony Stephens has revealed that his performances in the London Paralympics have exceeded his own expectations.

Stephens, who is a double-leg amputee, did not pick up a medal during the Games but he said that he has swum quicker than he ever has before.

"[I did] better than expected," Stephens said. "I was gutted that I couldn't pip a medal in the 200m. This was my second chance to get one.

"I would have loved to get a medal in front of these guys but it wasn't to be. I've got a season's best in every event so I can't complain."

Stephens came fifth in tonight's S5 100m freestyle final.
