Oscar Pistorius Loses in the Paralympics and Cries Unfair Advantage

During Monday’s 200m sprint in the Paralympics, South African favorite Oscar Pistorius lost. The three-time gold medal winner in Beijing and the feel-good story of the 2012 London Olympics blew out of the blocks but was passed in dramatic fashion after the turn. Brazil's Alan Oliveira flew by him in the straightaway. Moments after crossing the finish, Pistorius cried foul. "We are not running a fair race here," he said. He later added, "I can't compete with Alan's stride length."
