Disabled runner Oscar Pistorius both inspired us and made us feel lazy at the same time. If a man missing the bottom half of his legs is competing at the Olympics than us regular folks have no excuse for not going to gym. Pistorius failed to qualify for the finals in the 400-meter race. Regardless of how Pistorius raced all eyes were on him. I guess Nike knew this and took advantage of the opportunity. If you looked closely at Pistorius on the block you could make out the Nike check on his blade. Let’s not get confused here Nike does not make Pistorius’ blades but they did make his spikes. So I guess that means they can claim the whole thing? To give credit where it is due the blades were made by a company Össur.
But we hope this doesn’t stop Nike from sponsoring Pistorius because let’s face it he’s not only inspiring but he’s really hot. Just check out this photo of him below.
