Remember That Olympic Runner With No Legs? Well He Lost At The Paralympics And Says The Guy Who Beat Him Cheated
(ABC) — Some would call “Blade Runner” Oscar Pistorius, South Africa’s most celebrated paralympian, a sore loser. After losing his T44 (below knee amputee) 200 meter title by .07 seconds Sunday night, Pistorius told British broadcaster Channel 4: “We are not running in a fair race here.” Pistorius insisted that there was an issue with large prosthetics lengthening his Brazilian competitor’s stride. Pistorius, who was the first amputee runner in the history of the Olympics this year, apologized today for the timing of his comments about Alan Oliveira’s victory, but not for the message he was trying to get across. “That was Alan’s moment and I would like to put on record the respect I have for him,” Pistorius, 25, said in a statement. “But I do believe there is an issue here.”
Is the Blade Runner kidding me here? Not only does he fucking lose in the Paralympics after competing in the whole person Olympics, but then he blames the other guy’s fake legs? Dude that’s literally exactly what everyone was saying about you. Like to the T. Everyone said your prosthetics gave you an unfair advantage. You said bullshit. Now you’re saying this guy’s legs gave him an unfair advantage? That actually leaves me speechless. You’ve got no leg to stand on here. (no pun intended but intended) You were the most talked about paralympian in history. Unless this guy was wearing circus style stilts with a 200 meter stride you should have won. Guess you can add Oscar Pistorius to the long list of Olympians who were over-hyped and couldn’t perform when it counted. Poor little tink tink.
