The Men's 100 metres T54 event at the 2012 Summer Paralympics took place at the London Olympic Stadium on 1 and 2 September.[1]

The T54 category is for wheelchair athletes with no leg function, but near full arm function and reasonable to normal trunk function. Typically this may be caused by a lower spinal cord injury or spinal cord birth defect.
