The Blade Runner is Daegu-bound!
July 21, 2011Posted by on
Oscar Pistorius stops the clock in 45.07s in Italy. The Blade Runner shaved off a good half second from his erstwhile best of 45.61s en route to meeting the “A” standard for the 2011 Daegu World Championships. After years of controversy and misses, the South African double amputee finally achieved the elusive qualification standard – in the nick of time!
The post-race celebration was especially touching. This would have to be one of my favorite moments of the 2011 season.
Pistorius is a nice guy indeed. He sends direct messages to each and every tweeter who sent their respective congratulations!
