Oscar Pistorius has been included in South Africa’s London 2012 Paralympics team and will defend his 100m, 200m and 400-metres Paralympic titles, as one of 62 athletes named by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee on Wednesday.
Oscar said: “I am delighted to have my place confirmed for the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
“I believe the Paralympics in London will be a high watershed for Paralympic sport and it will be a truly phenomenal event. I am going to face some of the world’s most incredible athletes, particularly in the 100m and I will be putting everything into trying to defend my titles.
“I am also hopeful that South Africa will field a 4x100m relay and our aspirations would be to set a world record in that event.”
