Instead of getting the top training to prove they`re the best in the world naturally, they deal with their handicaps and overcome them to make themselves into not ONLY amazing athletes, but also inspirations to the entire world.
We call him Forest Gump =)
I couldn`t do that.
I dont know.
22 is really a sprinters prime. At 26... he needs to put some more work in.
Either way he wont come near Usain Bolt
That is Oscar Pistorius. And, he has TWO prosthetic legs, not one. And, the unfair advantage is that it is estimated that they add about four inches to his height if he would have had legs, making him 6`6" instead of 6`2" or something like that. Nevertheless, he won his appeal and would have participated in the Olympics had he made the qualifying time.
You will see him in London 2012
And who doesn`t know all about South Africa`s Oscar Pistorius, who just barely missed the regular healthy-people Olympic qualifying mark in the 400 meters. He would have qualified for Beijing 2008. He`s only 22 and will almost certainly qualify for London 2012. Did I mention that he has no legs?
Wait... aren`t they third in nations directly above Honduras? Think highly of yourself Canada, hold your head high
sure its a nice story but all I could help think is that
If you give them all limbs, they probably still wont make the regular olympics.
If there was a sprinter who was using one of those prosthetic legs and the Olympics almost disqualified him because they thought it was an unfair advantage. He still didn`t qualify (and he has dominated the paraolympic races for quite sometime).
sorry, I don`t find this FTW at all, I find it as an opportunity for those handicapped to get to play the sports they dreamed of doing
