At the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Pistorius became the first double leg amputee to participate in the Olympics when he entered the men's 400 metres race and was part of South Africa's 4 400 metres relay team. He also took part in the 2012 Summer Paralympics, where he entered the men's 100 metres, 200 metres and 400 metres races in the T44 classification, and in the T42T46 4 100 metres relay. He won gold medals in the men's 400 metre race in a Paralympic record time of 46.68 seconds and in the 4 100 metres relay in a world record time of 41.78 seconds. He also took a silver in the 200 metres race, having set a world record of 21.30 seconds in the semifinal.

Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius (/pstris/; born 22 November 1986) is a South African sprint runner. Pistorius, who has double below-knee amputations, competes in T44 (single below knee amputees) events though he is actually classified in T43 (double below knee amputee).[10] He is the T44 world record holder for the 200 and 400 metres events, and was previously the world record holder for the 100 metres as well.
