Oscar Pistorius of South Africa has accomplished something that no other athlete has. As a double amputee runner, he not only qualified to run the 400 meters in the 2012 London Olympics but he made it to the 2nd round against able bodied runners.
This feet is absolutely amazing to me. He defies everything that we were taught growing up. Someone who is missing the bottom half of his legs should not be able to run in the Olympics, but he did. And he did it well. He is truly an inspiration and I can’t wait to see what else he can do. Check out this article on the Washington Post.
