Hooray Pistorius!

In Lignano Sabbiadoro the South African athlete conquers London.

He did it! The meeting "Sport Solidarity" in Lignano Oscar Pistorius has exceeded the minimum for some much-needed access to the London 2012 Olympic Games. The result is terrific. The athlete finished the 400 meters in 45 "07. In fact beating the Jamaicans Lancedord Spence (46 "23) and Mason (46" 50). The goal required to go to London is 45 "25, but Pistorius did even better. His talent is unquestionable, but we like to think that a little 'of the credit also goes to the reception and Italian Lignano fast track that saw him speeding like a rocket.
