Olympic and Paralympic hero Oscar Pistorius took on a new kind of challenge yesterday, racing against a horse in Qatar.

The South African, popularly knows as “The Blade Runner,” easily beat his four-legged opponent, and said afterwards:

“It wasn’t about who won today.

“It was just about coming out here and showing people that those with disabilities are not to be stereotyped.”
