Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius (/p?s't?:ri?s/; born 22 November 1986) is a South African sprint runner. Pistorius, who has double below-knee amputations, is the world record holder for T44 in the 100, 200 and 400 metres events and runs with the aid of Cheetah Flex-Foot carbon fibre transtibial artificial limbs by Ossur. He competes in T44 (single below knee amputees) events though he is actually classified in T43 (double below knee amputee).
In 2007, Pistorius took part in his first international competitions for able-bodied athletes. However, his artificial lower legs have given rise to claims that he has an unfair advantage over able-bodied runners. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) amended its competition rules to ban the use of "any technical device that incorporates springs, wheels or any other element that provides a user with an advantage over another athlete not using such a device". The Federation said that the amendment was not specifically aimed at Pistorius. After monitoring his track performances and carrying out tests, scientists took the view that Pistorius enjoyed considerable advantages over athletes without prosthetic limbs. On the strength of these findings, on 14 January 2008 the IAAF ruled him ineligible for competitions conducted under its rules, including the 2008 Summer Olympics. This decision was reversed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on 16 May 2008, the Court ruling that, since he was slower out of the blocks than an able-bodied athlete there was insufficient evidence that Pistorius had an overall net advantage over able-bodied athletes.
Although eligible to compete in the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, Pistorius did not qualify for the South African team. In his attempt to qualify for the 400 metres he achieved third place and a personal best time of 46.25 seconds in Lucerne, Switzerland, on 16 July 2008, short of the Olympic qualification time of 45.55 seconds. Nor was he selected by the Sout
