Video: Olympics hero Oscar Pistorius races a horse in Qatar
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.”Tagged in: blade runner, horse, Oscar Pistorius, paralympics, Qatar
