Jason Smyth from Londonderry smashed two world records on his way to double gold at the last Games in Beijing, as he became the fastest Paralympian in history.
The performance prompted comparisons with Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.
"To be compared or put in the same sentence as his name is a great privilege," Jason said.
"Things have gone better running into London I've ran significantly faster since Beijing in the last four years I have continually dropped my time. I am where I want to be, hopefully that can be enough when the Paralympics comes around."
Since Beijing, Jason became the first athlete to compete in both the Paralympics and the able bodied European Championships.
He's also taken part in last year's World Championships and has spent the last three winters in Florida training with the second quickest athlete of all time, Tyson Gay.
Jason was trying to make more history by qualifying for the recent London Olympics Games but narrowly missed out.
Now, as attention turns to the Paralympics, he says he is confident as he looks to begin the defence of his titles on Friday evening.
"Going in as champion I've got to be confident that it is there for me to win again," said Jason.
"I don't think anybody that is in this situation going in as favourite or champion of previous that you've got your mind on anything else but winning again."
