QUOTE: In May, the Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned a ban by track and field’s world governing body, the International Association of Athletics Federations, saying that there was not enough evidence to prove that Pistorius’s j-shaped blades, which attach below his knees, gave him an advantage. The Court said he should be allowed to compete with able-bodied athletes. Even so, Pistorius had yet to meet the Olympic qualifying standard of 45.55 in the 400.
