1. Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee Olympian and Paralympian, raced an Arab race horse in Qatar. Oscar won, and it wasn’t even close.
The race was held to promote the “Definitely Able” campaign in Qatar, which works to eliminate discrimination against disabled and Paralympic athletes. The horse really stumbled out of the gates, but it seemed like Oscar had the horse beat anyway. We’d like to see him take on a cheetah next.
