Oscar Pistorius: a historic night in pictures

Oscar Pistorius: a historic night in pictures

Paralympic athlete, Oscar Pistorius, has made history by being the first paralympian to compete in the Olympic Games 2012.

Everybody is completely gripped with the excitement of this year’s Olympic and Paralympic Games, and here at Disability Horizons we are no different. Our co-editors, Srin and Martyn, have been to various Olympic events in and around London. But last Sunday, Srin was lucky enough to get a ticket to the Olympic Stadium to watch Oscar Pistorius run in the men’s 400 meter semi-final. It was one of those occasions where pictures speak a 1,000 words.

Take a look at our slideshow of Oscar Pistorius from the night.
