The eighth day on Aug. 4

"Blade Runner"

Wearing a pair of J-type artificial legs, South African player Oscar Pistorius was called "Blade Runner." The artificial legs also brought him unimaginable pain. However, it did not stop him becoming the first disabled competitor in track and field at the Olympic Games. The applause from spectators was the best tribute to a competitor broken in body but firm in spirit.
