Blade Runner Olympics
July 5, 2012 by staff
Blade Runner Olympics, BLADE Runner Oscar Pistorius’ history making appearance at the London Olympics will be celebrated – until he becomes a threat. The South African double amputee will compete at the Olympic Games after being selected in the individual 400m and the 4x400m relay.
Pistorius, who had both of his legs amputated at the age of 11 months, has been accepted by the athletics fraternity but former Australian Olympian and leading commentator David Culbert believes that sentiment could change if he is too successful.
“First of all it is an unbelievable performance, it is an incredible performance,” Culbert said. “It is accepted that it is all OK whilst he is not a threat, as soon as he becomes a threat there will be an avalanche (of criticism).
“I think while he is running 45.5sec everybody is happy to see him in the field but if all of a sudden he runs 44.5sec I think you could see the attitude change pretty quickly.”
