I have a phenomenal team behind me who have helped get me here and I, along with them, will now put everything we can into the final few weeks of preparations before the Olympic Games, where I am aiming to race well, work well through the rounds, post good times and maybe even a personal best time on the biggest stage of them all.

Oscar Pistorius

You're not disabled by the disabilities you have, you are able by the abilities you have.

Oscar Pistorius
Everyone has setbacks. I'm no different. I happen to have no legs. That's pretty much the fact.
Oscar Pistorius

Being disabled doesn't have to be a disadvantage.

Oscar Pistorius
I still find it strange, I suppose, when I say to someone, 'Can you just pass me my leg?' But I don't ever think about my disability.
Oscar Pistorius

I've been followed home late at night. I've been shot at on the highway.

Oscar Pistorius
Thank you to everyone that has made me the athlete I am! God, family and friends, my competitors and supporters! You have all had a hand!
Oscar Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius is on the cusp of a paradigm shift in which disability becomes ability, disadvantage becomes advantage. Yet we mustn't lose sight of what makes an athlete great. It's too easy to credit Pistorius' success to technology. Through birth or circumstance, some are given certain gifts, but it's what one does with those gifts, the hours devoted to training, the desire to be the best, that is at the true heart of a champion.

Oscar Pistorius
There is a big difference between being good and being great.
Oscar Pistorius

I want to wake up every day and feel that I'm training harder than my competitors, that I'm dieting harder, that I'm recovering better. That's what gives me confidence when I'm lining up on the blocks. I've never gone out to prove people wrong. I just want to be the best that I can possibly be.

Oscar Pistorius
I don't see myself as disabled. There's nothing I can't do that able-bodied athletes can do.
