Keeping with my Olympic obsession. I can't even describe my excitement watching this guy.
His name is Oscur Pistorius from South Africa. He has been a double-amputee since he was 11 months old. His mother always wanted him to do everything the other kids did. After a lot of conservancy, he was finally able to compete in the Olympics. He is the FIRST DOUBLE-AMPUTEE ATHELETE TO COMPETE IN THE OLYMPIC TRACK AND FIELD GAMES.
He didn't make it to the finals, but what a story!!!! I cried every single time I watched him race, it was amazing and so inspiring.
