Updated: March 17, 2012


Double-amputee athlete Oscar Pistorius has again run inside the 400-metre qualifying time for London Olympics.

Pistorius clocked 45.20 on his carbon fibre blades at a meet in South Africa on Saturday, bettering for a second time the mark of 45.30 laid down by the IAAF for able-bodied athletes. Pistorius ran 45.07 in a race in Italy last year.
