I would like to challenge the biomechanics community to develop prostheses
that will produce world records in many track and field disciplines. It
should not be too difficult,

Subject: [BIOMCH-L] Oscar Pistorius allowed to compete in regular Olympic
Games after all

On this forum we have discussed the pros and cons of double amputee Oscar
Pistorius and whether he would have an advantage in the Olympics.

Well he has won his appeal and will now be allowed to compete in 2008
Olympics after all. Here is the link:
