Oscar Pistorius has been given permission to compete for a spot in the Olympics.
There are people that think that he shouldn't be allowed to compete because his blades give him an unfair advantage.
He is missing both of his legs below the knees.
I am of the opinion that if something provides an advantage in sports, then other people will try to do it to get an edge over the competition, no matter how dangerous it is. (ie: steroids)
I think that the Court of Arbitration for Sport has set a dangerous precedent. It won't be long before runners all over the world start cutting off their legs in order to run faster. Be alert. You may see these patients in your ER when their black-market or home amputation goes bad.
