2008 Summer OlympicsOscar Pistorius

IAAF tests Pistorius

26 Jul, 2007

The federation announces that it will conduct a full biomechanical analysis of Pistorius to see whether his blades give him an advantage.

Amongst other things, the scientists would like to measure his energy consumption with 400m loads and compare that with data of able-bodied athletes of the same speed. Secondly, they would like to measure Oscar’s running mechanics and compare that with an able bodied runner using force plates, 3D-kinematics etc.
