He played multiple sports when he was young, and eventually realized that he excelled at sprinting even without lower legs and decided that he would focus on the sport. People started to take notice of this legless sprinter, and as Pistorius rose up the ranks, many wondered whether his metal racing leg replacements, or “blades,” were truly a benign replacement for legs, or an advantage that was helping this inspiring athlete to outclass his competition. On one side of this ethical dilemma, the blades were considered an advantage for Oscar because there is no truly objective way to know whether they were helping him to win his races. The blades do not fatigue as human legs would during the course of a grueling and intense 100 or 200 meter sprint. Until he was evaluated scientifically, there was no way to compare the blades to how a human leg would perform in terms of pushing force and the interaction that the blades would have with the ground compared to the combination of a sprinters shoe, foot, and leg

Second, he possessed an astonishing intuition that resulted in long gains or touchdowns, when other quarterbacks would have been sacked. And third, he was a calm leader and an inspiration to everyone around him for more than a decade, (Montana, & Mitchell, 2006). Joe Montana would become the greatest NFL regular season and Super Bowl quarterback ever or at least to date; Joe’s climb to the top of the NFL was not ominous. Joe was not drafted by the 49ers until the third round in 1979, unlike most super star quarterbacks, that almost always go immediately in the first round draft. Joe Montana shined during his high school athletic career, but had to earn every spot he played after that, (Montana, & Mitchell,
My grandparents are living proof that the American Dream of having a family and living happily can truly happen.
