Flashing Blades

Finally on a lighter note .... in another case of the biter, bitten, Oscar Pistorius, whom many non paraplegic runners believe gains an advantage over them when he races against the able bodied because of his carbon fibre 'blades', has now complained that he was beaten unfairly by Alan Oliveira because his blades were even bigger .....

Big Blades - Clashing Blades

Pistorius told Channel 4: "We are not running in a fair race here. I don't know how you can come back, watching the replay, from eight metres behind on the 100 to win. It's absolutely ridiculous".

He has since apologised, but in reality the cats out the bag now because these blades are capable of adding feet (pardon the pun) to the stride patterns of runners, and if it carries on like this, then soon a double amputee will be running faster than an able bodied runner .... then what will happen? Oops.
