Daniel Hooker said he may retire after finishing seventh in the T37 100m final.
The 22-year-old Oxford University graduate was blown away by the atmosphere at Hampden Park and admitted it was probably a good way to bow out.
England’s Hooker, who has cerebral palsy, clocked 13.15secs in a race won by South Africa’s Fanie Van Der Merwe (11.65,) so missed out on breaking his personal best of 12.79.
“This might be my last race,” he said. “I can’t think of a better atmosphere to finish in.
“If that was the last race I ever run, that was all you could ever hope for other than winning.
“That would be a pretty incredible last memory of being a track runner.”
Elsewhere, Didcot rifle shooter Dan Rivers (England) missed out on a place in the 50m prone final after finishing 20th in his qualifier.
Rivers could not add to the bronze medal he won in the 10m competition, but goes again in the three position event today.
Former Oxford University student, swimmer James Jurkiewicz (Guernsey) finished sixth in his 200m backstroke heat, clocking 2mins 11.61secs.
Zoe Shipperley and her England women’s hockey teammates must avoid defeat against Scotland tomorrow to be sure of reaching the semi-finals.
The former St Edward’s School, Oxford pupil and staff member, from Marsh Gibbon, was in the England squad, who lost 3-0 to Australia.
Shipperley said: “I think today was our best performance so far.
“We created really good chances; we just have to start converting them.”
Scotland set up the eagerly-awaited qualification showdown with England after beating a Wales side featuring former Oxford Hawks and Oxfordshire player Emma Batten 2-0.
Batten said: “We are still hoping to finish fourth in the pool.”
