Doddington sprinter Jonnie Peacock picked up two wins over his great rival Richard Browne in 24 hours.
On Friday night, in Brussels, Browne was disqualified for a false start and Peacock, the reigning Paralympic, World and European champion, won the T44 100m in 10.99 seconds.
On Saturday, in front of 25,000 people at the Great City Games in Gateshead, Browne was behind from the off and Peacock powered clear to win in 11.11 seconds, with Browne second in 11.36 seconds.
The pair will meet at the IPC World Championships in Doha next month.
Speaking after his Great City Games triumph, Peacock said: “Obviously I wasn’t expecting anything crazy fast after racing yesterday (in Brussels).
“This is a warm up for the big one at the IPC World Championships in six weeks. Every time you come to the City Games it’s awesome. The crowd are so close to you.”
