Oscar Pistorius Biography

A South African former professional sprinter and convicted murderer, Oscar Pistorius is widely known as the blade runner. He endured the amputation of both legs as an infant but still became highly active in sports. He took up running at age 16, and within a few months, he had captured gold at the 2004 Athens Paralympics. He was the first amputee athlete to compete in the Olympic. He attempted to enter non-disabled international competitions, over persistent objections by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) after becoming a Paralympic champion. He was the first amputee to win a non-disabled world track medal at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics and was also the first double-leg amputee participant to compete in the 4 times 400 meters relay at the 2012 Olympics. He runs with J-shaped carbon-fiber prostheses called the "Flex-Foot Cheetah" developed by biomedical engineer Van Phillips and manufactured by Ossur. In 2014, he was convicted of negligent killing in the death of his girlfriend, and the conviction was changed to murder in 2016. Additionally, he has gained several awards in his careers like the Laureus World Sports Award, and BBC Sports Personality of the Year Helen Rollason Award.
