Oscar Pistorius Banned From Olympics

Oscar PistoriusOscar Pistorius has been ruled ineligible to compete at this summer's Olympic Games because his prosthetic limbs give him an unfair advantage. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) said the double amputee's "cheetah" blades were technical aids in clear contravention of IAAF rules, effectively banning the South African, 21, from competing against able-bodied athletes. Pistorius' only course of action now appears to be an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The right decision; once Oscar in a bunch of other will follow. Nothing against Oscar but you can't transform the Olympics a contest between disable "technically enhance" people and outstanding athletes that push the human limits on their own giving talents.

Yes, I agree with you on this... but I also do greatly admire the achievements of Oscar Pistorius...
