A few days back, it was published in one of the South African papers that Oscar Pistorius known as the ‘Blade Runner’ was on tracks practicing for one of the coming athletics events. The newspaper had also printed his photograph in which he was wearing track gear with blades. It was described that the photograph was taken by a Pretoria University student as the track used by the Olympian was of that university. However, family of Oscar Pistorius have strongly denied the story and said that he was not following any training session and so far, he has not decided to participate in any event in the future. The family also stated that the decision to compete and train lied wholly with the Oscar.

 

According to the family, Oscar was still in a trauma as a result of the charges of the murder of his girl friend Reeva Steenkamp. Although he attempted to run outside in isolation after his family members motivated him to do so along with some exercise, but the he has not been able to get out of the mental shock he suffered as a result of the incident. He was granted bail in February with very tough conditions. However, they were relaxed on 28th March. He was also allowed to leave the country which was previously barred. He had a schedule to compete in the second quart of 2013 in Brazil, Australia, USA and UK, but due to the murder of his girlfriend, he had cancelled his appearance.

It was blamed that Oscar had killed his girlfriend intentionally. However, Pistorius said that it was just an accident as he had taken the person in the toilet to be a burglar.
