Two golds for Oscar
- Updated: May 28, 2011
Double-amputee runner Oscar Pistorius collected two gold medals Friday at the Paralympic World Cup in Manchester, England.
Sapa reports that the South African sprinter won the T44 100-metre race in 11.04 seconds, before clocking 47.28 seconds in the T42/44 400m event.
Pistorius, known as the “Blade Runner,” hopes to qualify for the able-bodied world championships in Daegu, South Korea, later this year.
He also hopes to compete for South Africa in next year’s London Olympics as well as the Paralympics.
Pistorius runs on carbon-fibre prosthetic limbs.
