Murray, the top seed in individual BC2 tournament, suffered an upset quarter-final defeat on Thursday but won a play-off against Sohn Jeong-Min of Korea 7-2 to take 7th place overall.
“I didn’t actually see him [Lord Coe] but someone mentioned that he’d come in, so I thought I better put on a bit of show for him, rather than go out with a bit of a whimper,” said Murray.
The 48-year-old from Leamington Spa was competing in his fourth Games. He won individual gold in Sydney, individual silver and team gold in Beijing, plus a further team bronze earlier this week.
Asked what he had done with his medal he said: “It’s actually tucked in my pants drawer in my room. Well, let’s hope it’s still there anyway.”
This morning, Murray lost 11-0 to Hong Kong’s Yeung Hiu Lam in the 5-8 semifinal play-off but refused to blame a minor hand injury, when he cut himself on his wheelchair, for that defeat.
“I got a win to finish on a positive rather than just being a negative,” he said.
“I knew I could play better and there were more people in this afternoon so I wanted to give a better performance for myself than I did this morning.”
Murray said he would stay at the ExCeL to support his team-mates David Smith and Stephen McGuire, who both compete in semi-finals later.
Stephen’s brother Peter McGuire rounded off his Games with a another narrow defeat, on a tiebreak against Lau Wai Yan of Hong Kong.
He had already lost on a tiebreak in the Thursday’s individual BC4 quarterfinals and by a point in the mixed pairs BC4 semi-finals earlier this week.
“It was the final ball again. Those are the small margins that change winners to losers,” said the Scotsman. “It was a fantastic tournament. I played very consistently and the crowd really picked us up.”
