SASCOC named a star-studded team to travel to the London Paralympic Games later this year.

Brussels - Double-amputee runner Oscar Pistorius once again missed South Africa's qualifying time for the Olympic Games, almost a second off the mark in winning a 400m race in Belgium.

Pistorius won the EAP meeting in Nivelles in 46.20, almost a full second off the 45.30 mark he needs to get automatic qualification for the Games.
