South Africa's silver medallist Oscar Pistorius (L) looks down as Brazil's Alan Fonteles Oliveira (R) holds up his gold medal on the podium during the medal ceremony of the men's 200m T44 athletics event at the London 2012 Paralympic Games at the Olympic Stadium in east London on September 3, 2012. Pistorius apologised on September 3 for the timing of his outburst after losing his T44 200m title, but insisted there was an issue with large prosthetics lengthening an amputee's stride. Pistorius, the star of the London 2012 Paralympics, was sensationally beaten into the silver medal position by Brazil's Alan Oliveira on September 2, in a result that stunned the Olympic Stadium. The 25-year-old then hit out at the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), claiming it was not a fair race and he was at a disadvantage caused by artificial leg length, as the regulations allowed athletes to make themselves 'unbelievably high'.
