The Unfair Advantage

Oscar Pistorius is a sprinter who tried out for the South African Olympic team. Sounds legit right? Check it. He has no legs. Instead, he has two metal things that are supposed to replace his legs. People with prostetic and bionic legs is cool and all but I think that he definitely has the unfair advantage sprinting in these. He doesn't get the pain in his fake legs which definitley affects any sprinter mentally and physically. How did he even get to try out?

easy killer. all the rest of his muscles have to support his prosthetics.... he doesnt have the leg muscles to do it. The rest of his body must be stronger than any other athlete
