21 Oct, 2014

The International Paralympic Committee confirms that Pistorius will be banned from competing for the full five years, even if he is released to house arrest. He won’t be able to run at the Rio Olympics.

The rules state that if someone is given a five-year sentence by a court, they must serve that sentence before returning to competition

He will be 33 by the time of the Tokyo Games and it is unclear if he will be in competitive shape. He also may not be allowed to travel freely to other countries.
