The original "Blade Runner" lost his 100 and 200 Paralympic titles this week, but eased to victory in his preferred 400 event in 46.68 seconds, more than 3 seconds ahead of Blake Leeper of the United States.
"It was very, very special for me - it was the last event of my season, it was the last event of the London 2012 Games," said Pistorius, who anchored South Africa's 400 relay team to victory Wednesday. "It was my 11th time I was able to come out on the track and I just wanted to end and give the crowd something they would appreciate and take home with them.
"I was very nervous before today's race. I was quite tired."
