Oscar Pistorius: IPC will allow him to compete at Rio Paralympics
The International Paralympic Committee has revealed that Oscar Pistorius will be allowed to compete at the 2016 Paralympic Games if he is not in jail.
The South African, 27, was found guilty of culpable homicide yesterday, after the judge ruled he killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp by mistake.
Sentencing will take place on 13 October, but Pistorius could compete at Rio if he has served his sentence.
Pistorious, nicknamed Blade Runner, won six gold medals at three Paralympic Games and made history by becoming the first amputee sprinter to compete at the Olympics.
