Amputees in the Olympics

Two big stories today.

First, Pistorius has won his appeal, and will be allowed to run in Beijing. Pistorius is a double amputee mentioned in previous posts here.

Second, a swimmer who had their leg amputated below the knee qualified for the Olympics this year, making her the first in history. Oh, and no wimpy prosthetics, either. She did it with one leg.
