Pistorius enjoying peaceful buildup to Olympics

Pistorius enjoying peaceful buildup to Olympics

Out in leafy west London, double-amputee Oscar Pistorius gets to run in relative peace.
That will all change very soon.
The South African 400-meter runner, who is set to become the first amputee to compete on the track at the Olympics, had a relaxed training session Sunday at a small university way out on the other side of the city from the bustling Olympic Park.
It'll get far busier for the 25-year-old "Blade Runner" starting Wednesday when he makes his first formal media appearance in London ahead of his historic debut Saturday in the 400 heats at the Olympic Stadium. He'll also be on South Africa's 4x400 relay team.
On Sunday, Pistorius ran 200-meter splits alongside teammate Ofentse Mogawane, pounding down the track on his carbon-fiber blades.
