Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee athlete known as "Blade Runner," may get a lot of stares on the track but he seems to get a lot of attention from the runway too. The South African runner has caught the eye of Russian supermodel Anastassia Khozissova and the two are dating, says The New York Post.

Pistorius— who qualified to run in the 400 meter relay at the London Games— and Khozissova, a model who has graced the catwalks for Chanel, Prada, Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs, have been "dating for just over a month," said the newspaper.



The pair reportedly met in New York and were spotted holding hands while strolling the streets of Chelsea. The track star recently broken up a relationship with a longtime girlfriend.

Pistorius will make history this summer as the first amputee to compete in any Olympics. There has been controversy concerning the fact that he runs on two prosthetic J-shaped, carbon-fiber blades which some critics claim gives Pistorius an unfair advantage on the track. A court cleared him to compete against able-bodied athletes in 2008.



Khozissova is an Olympic-class model in her own right. The stunner is ranked as the world's third-top model on the website Modelinia— ahead of such beauties as Victoria's secret Angels Doutzen Kroes and Candice Swanepoel. She's also an instructor at the Maybelline Stiletto Boot Camp— which shows women how to strut down the runway in high heels.

Carbon-fiber blades and six-inch stilettos— sounds like a match made in heaven.
