Oscar Pistorius by Markha 1999

Oscar Pistorius, who was born in South Africa in 1986, is a great example for all of us. He was born with a congenital problem in both of his legs. When he was just eleven months old, both his legs were amputated below the knee. But Pistorius knew he wasn’t going to spend the rest of his life in a wheel-chair. At primary school and secondary school, he played rugby, water polo and tennis. In January 2004, recovering from a rugby injury, Pistorius took up running. He loved it. Soon he was competing in the Paralympics. He won three gold medals. But his times are so fast (he has run 100 meters in 10.91. seconds) that Pistorius wanted to compete in the Olympic Games. The actor Tom Hanks, who is a fan of Pistorius, wants to make a film about his life.
