Oscar Pistorius, Athlete

Oscar Pistorius needed to have both legs amputated below the knee when he was 11 months old but he's grown up into a world class runner.

He runs on carbon fibre blades earning him the nickname "Bladerunner".

This week on The Interview he talks to Owen Bennett Jones about his dream to compete with able-bodied athletes in the 2012 Olympics and why he has a fear of ballet.
