Oscar Pistorius

Rome race

14 Jul, 2007

Pistorius finishes second against able-bodied athletes in the Golden Gala 400-meter event, coming from last place on the turn to achieve a time of 46.90 seconds. The race is part of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) assessment as to whether Pistorius’s blades give him an unfair advantage.

If the IAAF decide to ban me, it will be something I’ll just have to deal with. But it would be nice to feel that they were working with me, not against me.
