OSCAR PISTORIUS IS A MAN WHO NEVER GIVES UP. This summer was beaten many records, but even a Usain Bolt’s record in the 400 meters sprint didn’t surprise me as much as what I saw. And I saw a runner who was prepared for the race, not just a runner, a runner without legs. This is the first time when I saw amputee- sportsman, who played in the Olympics. His name is Oscar Pistorius. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa. When the future athlete was 11 months, he removed his legs below the knees, because of his birth, he had no fibula in both legs. Nevertheless, he went to a normal school and, indeed, actively engaged in sports such as running, rugby, tennis, water polo and wrestling. Later, after a knee injury, he focused only on the track and field and was rapidly progressing. Over time, he also enrolled in the University of Pretoria with a specialization in management - but, by his own admission, because training has to shorten the time course and does not expect to complete their education earlier than 30 years of age. In 2008, the Sports Federation of the University of Pretoria Pistorius named athlete of the year.
