The place for the oddball one-off sports stories. Like this:

So, even Bolt is not immune to the vagaries of automatic DQ's. But this bit was more interesting to me:

Quote:
Oscar Pistorius made history by becoming the first amputee athlete to compete in world championships history.

The South African, who runs with carbon fiber prosthetic running blades, came third in his men's 400-meter heat to qualify for Monday's semifinal, with the final on Tuesday.
Screw the paralympics, eh?

He could qualify for the Olympics in London, if he hasn't already.

I don't think the dude with the blades should be allowed to compete with normal athletes. That's like letting a cheetah compete. I know that the blades may not be as fast yet, but as the technology of them increases it may, and letting him in just means more of them will be let in as time passes. And soon, the only way to win the olympics is to cut your feet off and get the blade replacement. Some deus ex type shit. Fuckin augs.
