Go Oscar

Double-amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius fell short of the 400 metre qualifying time for the Beijing Olympics despite running a personal best today.

The 21-year-old South African finished third in 46.25 seconds. That is 11 hundredths faster than he ever ran before, but still outside the Olympic qualifying standard of 45.55s.

Very inspiring. Less than a a second off the qualifying time. I hope he gets picked anyway. The Olympics needs inspiring stories like this.

Yes, inspiring, and I agree with you - Oscar should be allowed to run.
