Össur salutes Oscar Pistorius, for being selected to compete in the individual men’s 400m and 4x400m relay on behalf of Team South Africa.
"With this extraordinary accomplishment, Oscar Pistorius has achieved what no other lower-limb amputee has ever done, and helped make Össur’s Flex-Foot Cheetah a household name.
As the ‘Blade Runner,’ he is one of the most recognized and influential amputees in the world, embodying what it means to live life without limitations,” said Jon Sigurdsson, president and CEO of Össur. “We are inspired by all he has accomplished, and humbled that he chooses to wear Össur prostheses both on and off the track. We wish Oscar continued success as he claims his place in the pantheon of athletic greatness and enters the world stage of athletic competition.”
