Even when he's looking at photos of his bleeding and blistered leg stumps, Oscar Pistorius smiles.
And with his Olympic debut approaching, it's easy to understand why.
Pistorius, whose legs were amputated below the knee when he was a baby, is set to make history by running - yes, running - in the London Olympics. He will be the first amputee athlete to compete at the Olympics...
If there are rockets hidden somewhere in there then he's definitely cheating.
