Oscar Pistorius fails to qualify for Beijing Olympics

Double amputee Oscar Pistorius’s dream of qualifying for the Beijing Olympics is beginning to fade as he missed another opportunity to qualify for the 400 meters.

He ran his best time though last week in Milan.

“I felt this race was awesome, but I can still improve,” Pistorius said. “After last week’s race in Milan I was really worried in and I was very nervous going in tonight.”

He has been training hard to qualify since an arbitration said he was eligible to run in the Beijing Olympics, two months ago.

He will of course be running at the Paralympics to be held in Beijing from September 6th.
