oscar-Pistorius-apologizes-200-controversyPistorius apologizes for the timing of his comments on Oliveira’s blades but continues his call for a revision of the IPC rules:

I would never want to detract from another athletes’ moment of triumph and I want to apologize for the timing of my comments. I do believe that there is an issue here and I welcome the opportunity to discuss with the IPC but I accept that raising these concerns immediately as I stepped off the track was wrong. That was Alan’s moment and I would like to put on record the respect I have for him.
