At first, double-amputee Oscar Pistorius was running on the Paralympic circuit using his high-tech running blades. Now that he's won an international court battle, he can run against able-bodied athletes at the London Olympic games. Mark Phillips reports.

A day will come when people will pay ridiculous amounts of money to replace their natural body parts with cybernetic ones.

This issue will only intensify as bionics advance. We will eventually need a separate league for augmented athletes.

It’s cost 50,000 dollars for running legs alone, let alone leg therapy and other medical cost

Im not a hater, i really respect these type of athletes (i run track myself) but dont you think like if you fine tune the legs they can exceed more force being imputted into them and spring harder? Michael Johnson said, "the more force being put into the ground the faster you will go." Along with the weight of the material and the work being put into it, example about the work is when you sprint you have to always land on the balls of your feet but with these you only focus on the hips and moving your thighs. Im not disrespecting im just stating out a fact that could be reasonable.

If other runners complain that this man's artificial legs give him an unfair advantage, they should get their legs removed and get a pair of blades...

What kind of dumb argument is that? The Olympics are about natural abilities. Encouraging people to mutilate their bodies to be able to compete goes against that pretty hard.

So the guy with no legs has an advantage over runners with legs in the Olympics?.... does that sound stupid to anyone else????
Deanandre (13 дней назад)
This spring technology you say propels him forward isn't much of an advantage considering his calves would've done a better job. Also, he'd lost his Achilles tendons: important organs responsible for generating the explosive force at the beginning of the race. He would've been a great runner had he a complete set of limbs.

No, it doesn't sound stupid . His legs dont have fat i them which means he is light as a feather . This gives him an advantage over other athletes .
Mr Penguin (7 месяцев назад)
He has to focus on his upper legs for strength.
Kwyjibo O_o (1 год назад)
He has prosthetic legs for running. The question is about whether or not the prosthetic legs perform better than natural legs. The olympics is about natural abilities, so it's a good question that should be discussed.

Team WaveHD Do you know how many springs are in our biological legs?
DeMorié Robinson (2 года назад)
Its because he runs tons lighter than someone with legs giving an extreme advantage, almost unfair, but he may not have the best leg support to go his fastest with the running legs. If the other runner with natural legs want to beat him they just have to train to be faster.

I am also a below knee double amputee and i run for my high school team. I work harder than everyone else and improve a lot, but i have not beaten any biological leged athlete yet and i know their is no way that blades give an advantage. A good way to test this would be to look at runners times of people before they lost their legs and after. Alsoe  only one amputee has made it to the olympics so far out of millions, no one has even come close. so when the scientists lose their legs and can experience running in blades then they can talk.

"oscar was aloud to compete" allowed

I dont mean this is as disrespect but he shouldnt have run in the olympics thats why their is a Paralympics

You can still have muscles injured with blades. Think of all the pressure going on the knees, not to mention the rest of leg and thigh muscles.
XWolven (1 год назад)
No it isn't. People with Prosthetics can compete against each other. It would be like Racing Cars. The person with the most supped up car and best driving skills wins. Everyone will try to out do each other as always.
fopperer (1 год назад)
well put it this way: when u have 2 feet u have way more muscles, bones etc. that can get injured. with an injury u cant excercise. so there's an undeniable advantage of blades

he definitely worked his ass off despite his disabilities and for this reason he really shows what you can do with hard work and dedication.

I was talking to someone who was mentioning a friend who was a double BKA, but she described them as a "double below knee" which sounded to me like "double bologna". Yeah.
