South African athlete Oscar Pistorius questioned the victory of Brazilian Alan Oliveira in the final of the 200m at the Paralympic Games inferring that Oliveria’s prostheses gave him advantage.
After the race, Pistorius told authorities that the Games should prohibit those prosthesis. He argued that the prostheses are very long and make you run faster.
Pistorius subsequently apologized, saying that his complaint should have saved for another time.
“I do not want to detract from other athlete in his moment of triumph. I apologize for my comments,” the South African said in a statement.
Moreover, the International Paralympic Committee agreed to meet and discuss Pisitorius’ complains.
