The friction is a real bitch, though

I think that's what those little spikes on the bottom of his prosthetics are for.

I'm talking about the friction between stumps of his legs and the razors.

Well they most likely have braces or padding in between his stumps and his prosthetics.
Kinda like shoes
I mean they were specifically designed to allow him to run and sprint at long distances and a ton of money probably went to it's design and mechanics so I think they woulda solved that before hand.

Here are the mechanics of his prosthetics.

They've got some pretty comfy gel inserts in there. Probably more comfortable than actual knees.

It's a lot easier when you weigh about two legs less.

if you're using the muscle, it's not slowing you down

unless their prosthetics are hydraulic they only use their thighs to run, rather than the calves, toes, etc

No, it's just so sad that we'll never be with her again. That's what I'm feeling and I assume that everyone else commenting sad stuff on this thread feels about the same.

the jokes aside. running with those legs is actually easier than regular running. which is why there was some initial controversy to his racing to begin with. Because those legs are designed to have optimal speed and fewer muscles mean there is less energy spent while running. basically turning you into a human kangaroo.

That and he was able to be in both the Olympics and the Special Olympics, which gives him nearly double the money and sponsership opportunities than any one athelete in either.

wait... so those legs are actually an improvement?

In terms of speed, yes, but real legs are more maneuverable over a wider range of terrain, not to mention a lot easier to climb with.

So, yes, those legs are an improvement... if you're talking only about running mostly straight distances on a flat surface.

Pistorius' lawyers say they plan to fight the charges against them but legal experts agree his case doesn't have a leg to stand on I'm sorry I had to
