re: Silicon Valley Nation: What makes Oscar Pistorius run?

NO RATINGS
During the Olympics we were told over and again that the Olympic Competition Comity cleared Pistorius' on the basis that in their view his prosthetics gave him no advantage over a fully legged runner. This SA analysis clearly states otherwise and it seems quite logical. I wonder how something so obvious could have been over looked? But for my money I just grew tired of the story. How many minutes spent by NBC on the Pistorius story (and nearly everything else Mary Carillo did) could have been used to cover other events where actual gold medals were won?
