Olympic highlights: Oscar Pistorius runs second in Mens 400m heat

South African athlete Oscar Pistorius, who had both of his legs amputated below the knee when he was a child, became the first double-amputee to compete in the Summer Olympics. Running in the first heat for the Men’s 400 meters, he finished second, advancing to the semifinals. Unfortunately he failed to make the final, but his effort is truly inspiring.
