Race to the finish line

In a move toward equality, international track officials have decided that a South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius who has two prosthetic legs can compete against able-bodied runners. Initially, there had been a ruling against runners who benefited from "artificial help." Pistorius is now dreaming of the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing. If he qualifies, he would be the first runner with a physical disability to compete in the Olympics.
