Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee sprinter with the springy carbon-fibre blade prosthetics, IS permitted to compete in regular able-bodied events.  Which means that he can try out for the regular South African team and has good hopes of turning up at the Beijing Olympics.

He'll be chuffed to bits.
