Oscar Pistorius

The fastest thing on no legs has a burning ambition to take part in the Olympics. But the world athletics controlling body argues that the artificial legs he wears give him an unfair advantage. It says the blades are structured in a manner that they allow Oscar to conserve energy longer than able-bodied athletes and he therefore continues accelerating long after an able-bodied person would. Oscar was born without fibulas and had both legs amputated before he was a year old. But he later engaged in contact sports such as rugby and water polo until a knee injury sent him to athletics. Oscar is an ambassador for those who refuse to let life's circumstances stand in the way of their dreams.
