Oscar Pistorius — South African Athlete born on November 22, 1986,

Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius OIB is a South African sprint runner and convicted murderer. Although both of Pistorius' legs were amputated below the knee when he was 11 months old, he has competed in events for single below-knee amputees and for able-bodied athletes... (wikipedia)

I don't see myself as disabled. There's nothing I can't do that able-bodied athletes can do.
These have always been my legs. I train harder than other guys, eat better, sleep better and wake up thinking about athletics. I think that's probably why I'm a bit of an exception.
Out of the tens of thousands of prosthetic legs they've made, there's never been any 400-meter athletes run under 50 seconds. So, if this was such a technologically advanced prosthetic leg, then how come not everyone's qualifying, or coming close to the qualification time, then?
I have a strong sense that I have to educate people about disability.
Thank you to everyone that has made me the athlete I am! God, family and friends, my competitors and supporters! You have all had a hand!
