Oscar Pistoris


How excited and proud you must be feeling to see Oscar Pistoris finally being selected to run in the Olympics. Though the pressure is going to be so heavy for him with all the eyes of the world watching and cheering him on.

It is great news Barbara! He pioneered running on those "legs" and has trained and worked incredibly hard, so I hope he does well after so many disappointments previously.

Unfortunately only in the relay though. But still it's a breakthrough. I'd like to see the two events mixed with athletes who are able to compete even if they are partially abled, as much as is possible against the abled ones.

I am pleased about this.
