Blade Runner

By: Oscar Pistorius
Location: NF 920 PIS
Genre: Sporting legend!

"The fastest man on no legs" The Times

How would I cope if my lower legs were chopped off, I am short enough anyway!! Oscars parents at his birth had to decide to amputate his lower legs in the hope their son would be able to live a normal life- he was born with no fibulae. His Mum said to him in a letter " A loser is not one who runs last in the race. It is the one who sits and watches, and has never tried to run".

To get there, the London 2012 Olympics, competing against able bodied athletes is a true story of courage, guts, and inspiration.
