Another great male dasher is, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucas_Prado, Lukas Prado, he won the Triple Crown in the T11 category (blind/hard of vision categories are: T11, T12, and T13).
Pistorius does compete in the T44 one of the 5 -- five amputee categories.

Wow, he has a ton of speed, but he accelerates really slowly (he started out way back there in the 100). Maybe he should try the 800 if he ever wants to make the olympics.

Interesting; you may be right. He won the 100 m by "beating him to the half point in 200 m race."

Is he a large-frame? Look at Usain Bolt, his reaction time was slowest out of all spirnters at Beijing. The bigger you are, the more time it takes to get out of the blocks.
