11 Month Old Boy Loses Both Legs And Becomes World Class Sprinter

The Olympic Games have once again drawn to a close.  As always, I was amazed and thrilled to see the champions of sport from all over the world gather in London for a magical time.

I don’t know what it is about seeing people performing at their best that moves me.  But I find myself choked up, even holding back tears, when I know that I’m witnessing something extraordinary.

But this guy…..Oscar Pistorius…was something else altogether.

Talk About Beating the Odds

I mean, here’s a guy who had the whole deck stacked against him.  He lost both legs when he was 11  months old.  He was told he’d never be able to achieve what “normal” people could achieve. Over and over again….

But there he was, running in the 400 meter race in London. At the Olympics!  And he was keeping up with the best runners in the world.  This was no charity case or special pass.  This was a guy who overcame the toughest of odds to perform at the top level of the world.

My hat’s off to you, Oscar.  You’ve inspired me and millions more around the world.
