Sad news today out of South Africa with the shocking revelation that Oscar Pistorius, the double amputee runner who made history by competing in the Olympic Games this past summer in London, has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend.

Photographing him at the track and field in London this past summer was a highlight of the Games for me. His story was so inspirational and touched so many people at the time and really transcended the sport of track and field that summer. Really very sad for the family of the woman who was killed. Hope to hear some better news about this story in the coming days.

Here is a link to images of Pistorius from the Olympics last year: http://tinyurl.com/a47xaj9
