Oscar Pistorius didn't make it to the men's 400-meter final, but his performance at the Olympics was a win in and of itself. Is Pistorius' performance just the beginning for athletes with artificial limbs?
Sebastian7468: "If Pistorious' legs were such a huge advantage, the other runners would have no qualms about refusing to compete and staging some kind of sit-in. So get over it people, it's not like he's on a pair of gas powered rollerblades! "
daweadilX: "those things are like springs and if used correctly can make you run at record breaking speeds!"
BMCanes: "This is a great story, but not sure if it should be allowed. Besides the fact that he doesn't have to worry about ankle of calf problems. Can you imagine 100 years from now the type of technology they could add to prosthetics. "
nolefan6363: "Fair or not fair, advantage or no advantage, this man has a lot courage. I'll be rooting for Oscar Pistorius."
lorisloan72: "He is like anyone else... sometimes you win, sometimes you don't. I'd love to see him come back in 2016 and win something and continue to inspire people with all sorts of physical differences that they too can still reach beyond what the previously thought possible."
