LONDON (AP) Six-time Paralympic gold-medalist David Weir became the first wheelchair racer to complete a mile in under three minutes on Sunday.

Weir finished the Westminster Mile in a time of 2 minutes, 57 seconds, beating his previous best by six seconds.

Weir, who has won the London Marathon six times, said ''I've always said I could do it.''

Roger Bannister, who in 1954 was the first man to run a mile in under four minutes, sent Weir ''all my congratulations for his huge achievement.''
