Oscar Pistorius – Paralympics will change perceptions about disability, as reported in The Guardian:

Pistorius, the South African star of the Games, believes other countries will learn a lot from Britain’s enlightened approach to hosting the 2012 Paralympics. “The UK is definitely a country which deals with disability in a really amazing way,” Pistorius said. “There are a lot of people that are going to watch these Games around the world that are going to be forced in a way to see these Paralympics through the eyes of the people of the UK. And I think that is a great thing. There are a lot of people here that don’t focus on the disability any more, they focus on the athletes’ ability.”
