You are disabled by the disabilities that you have, you are able by the abilities you have
~Oscar Pistorius

South African, Oscar Pistorius, was born without fibula bones in his legs and that led to an amputation of both legs below the knees. As he grew up he became passionate about sports. At the age of 16 he badly injured his knee and during his rehabilitation he was introduced to running. Soon after learning that running was something he excelled at, he competed in the Paralypmics in Athens and Beijing. Now Oscar is competing in the 2012 Olympics in London. What an inspirational person!

Here is a preview of his talent! Watch for him in the 2012 London Olympics


He was also featured on the cover of Outside magazine in November 2011!
