Oscar Pistarius

The world class athlete who runs without legs.

South African, Oscar Pistarius had his two legs amputated at 11 months old but that did not stop him pursuing his goal of being a world class runner.

In 2008 at the Paralympics in Beijing, he became the first athlete in history to win gold in the 100m, 200m and 400m events in the T43/T44 category, the latter in a new Paralympic record of 47.49s.

In 2012 he hopes to run for his country, South Africa, in the Olympics!.

"I want to be able to look back at my career one day and say I gave it my best and I didn't let my ability or talent go to waste."
