Oscar Pistorius is a famous South African former professional sprinter who was convicted of murder in 2015. He was born with a congenital defect that forced the amputation of both of his feet when he was only 11 years old. Despite his condition, Oscar ran and competed in both non-disabled sprint events and in other sprint events for below-knee amputees.
He was even the tenth Athlete to compete at both the Paralympic and Olympic Games. Oscar was able to do all this through his artificial limbs that proved to be beneficial. However, the International Association of Atheltic Federations (IAAF) objected his participation in the non-disabled international competition because the artificial limbs gave an unfair advantage.
