Oscar Pistorius

May regain Blade contract if acquitted

17 Mar, 2014

Pistorius may regain his sponsorship contract with Ossur to wear the company’s Blade prosthetics if he is acquitted in his murder trial. CFO Sveinn Solvason:

Everything is possible in that regard. I don’t want to rule anything out. We just have to see how these things develop.

The comments come as Ossur confirms that it has dropped Pistorius from its roster amid the ongoing trial over the fatal shooting of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

[Pistorius] had a different status. He was a world famous athlete and we perhaps did more for him than for others.
