"This is an outstanding achievement by Michael. Not only has he won Gold and set a new world record at Beijing but he has become the first para-athlete to break the two minute barrier in this event. I send my warmest congratulations to Michael and his coach and father Paddy who also must feel justifiably proud not just of his son's success but of the important part he played in preparing Michael for this tremendous achievement."
