American Blake Leeper beat the South African Oscar Pistorius Paralympic T43 world record in the 400 meters, leading 45.25 seconds at the US track and field championships on Friday, officials said.

"It's hard to believe." To run 45.25 to break the world record, I'm excited about the future, "said the 27-year-old Tennessee boy who lives in southern California.

Leeper finished an unprecedented seventh in the semi-final race despite being a double amputee.
Pistorius set a record of 45.39 seconds in Daegu, South Korea in August 2011.

Paralympic gold medalist Pistorius is serving a six-year sentence after being convicted of murdering his girlfriend in 2013.
