Blade Runner to run in London Olympics 2012

Oscar Pistorius or 'Blade Runner' and 'The Fastest Man on no legs' will become the first double amputee to compete at the Olympics after being included on Wednesday in the South African 4x400-metre relay team for 2012 London Games, an official said. The 25-year-old's selection comes five days after conceding defeat in a battle to run in the 400m at the Games as he finished 0.22 of a second outside the qualifying mark of 45.30 seconds when coming second at the African championships in Benin.
