Very, Very Fast

Jesse Leimkuehler sent me a link to an amazing story over at Wired about Oscar Pistorius, a double amputee who has a chance to qualify for the South African Olympic Team in the 200 or 400 meters. He's run the 200 in 22.67, which is not world class, but it's still freaking fast.

If you're wondering how the hell that first paragraph makes any sense, the Cheetah prosthetic leg is a clue. And to read the story, which is fascinating, go here. You can also see a short video of Pistorius running at the same link.
