BLADE runner Oscar Pistorius is predicting the most open and fastest 100m in Paralympic history, but is playing down his chances of repeating his win of four years ago in Beijing.

The 25-year-old South African, who made history earlier this month by becoming the first double amputee to compete at the Olympics, said he would be happy with any colour medal after winning three golds in China in the T44 100m, 200m and 400m.

He expected the ones to beat would be world record holder Jonnie Peacock and world champion Jerome Singleton from the United States.
