Oscar Pistorius and an Olympic dream - Run, baby, run

Friday, February 15, 2008

Oscar Pistorius is one of the most gifted disabled athletes ever. He runs and competes at the highest level. Even against abled body athletes. He has no legs, but takes on the 'leggies' in their own game.

He runs on blades made just for him - the Blade Runner. And he ran so fast they called these blades “cheetah” blades. He was as fast as a cheetah on the hunt. But now they are saying that he can't compete at the Olympics.

He is appealing this decision and it will be his last chance to try and make it to Beijing. More on www.angryafrican.wordpress.com.
