I wanted to go under 4:20 if Im honest but a world record, Im happy with that.Ive worked so hard for that, I cant wait to get on the podium and get my medal.Elsewhere on Thursday, ?a united Great Britain football team took on hosts Brazil.Britains seven-a-side footballers, for athletes with cerebral palsy or an acquired brain injury, lost 2-1 at the Deodoro Stadium.The national Football Associations continue to block a British team at the Olympics, but there was no such issue at the Paralympics.ParalympicsGB had three Scots and one Northern Irishman in the 14-man squad.Former Birmingham player Jack Rutter captained a squad featuring ex-Liverpool player Sean Highdale and former Tranmere forward Ollie Nugent, who currently plays for Chester.England captain Wayne Rooney sent the squad a good luck message prior to the tournament -- and it appeared they would need it in a tough Pool A also featuring Ireland and Ukraine, the Paralympic champions in 2004 and 2008.Click HERE for more exclusive Paralympic content Curry One Shoes Uk .
