London Olympics will feature first amputee runner
Oscar Pistorius, a double leg amputee, has won a spot on South Africa's track team. He will compete in the upcoming Summer Olympics in London, racing in the individual 400 meter race. He runs on carbon fiber prosthetics (which some see as an advantage) and will be competing with able bodied athletes. It'll be interesting to see how it goes, and it would certainly be nice without any controversy.
