Oscar celebrates Fourie medal
London - Oscar Pistorius said he could not be happier that it was his close friend Arnu Fourie who deprived him of a podium finish in the men’s 100m T44 final at the Paralympic Games in London on Thursday night.
“I was hoping to get into the top three but to get beaten by three athletes, who all had such phenomenal performances, was truly something special,” Pistorius said after the race. “I thought I had finished third but when I saw that Arnu had beaten me, I think I was more happy that I’d come fourth. “
Arnu has been one of my biggest supports over the last couple of years and tonight I’m going to celebrate his medal with him.
