Oscar Pistorius of South Africa is a runner. He has no legs. They were amputated at the knee. However he has overcome this seemingly insurmountable challenge opting for prostethic limbs.

In fact, Oscar's prostethic limbs use such advanced technology that he may be barred from competing in the Olympics on claims that his prostethics give him an unfair advantage!
