Was it poor sportsmanship of Pistorius to complain when he did not win gold or do you think he has a genuine reason to feel cheated of gold & was that the right time to have a go about it. If he had won would he still be so cross??

I do feel sorry for Alan Oliveira.

In my humble opinion --yes ---it was poor sportsmanship, the rules and allowances are strictly adhered to by a commitee, it was Pistorious's choice to wear the blades he did, the truth of the matter is, he just wasn't the best best on day, no matter what he or others think.

Every Para Olympian that performs on a stage as big as the Olympics deserves a medal, and whoever comes first ---second --third --on the day doesn't matter a jot really, the fact they trained and trained to take part is where medals should be granted.
