On Saturday evening, "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius sat down with Piers Morgan in studio for an engaging and inspiring interview. The South African Olympic and Paralympic sprinter shared his thoughts on being a role model. "I think it's a massive blessing," said Pistorius. "And, obviously, being an international sportsman, there's a lot of responsibility that comes with that."
"I see a child and he's staring at my prosthetic legs, often the parent turns the kid away," observed Pistorius. "And they develop a mentality of kind of shying away from disability and not being educated about it. And I think that's what creates the difficulty in society."
Pistorius also talked about his attitude towards competition which he credits to his family. "Sport is not about being the best, but it's about giving your best," said Pistorius, quoting his mother. "Losing isn't the one that gets involved and comes last, it's the person that doesn't get involved in the first place."
Watch the clip and listen to the interview as Pistorius shares with Morgan tips on how to impress young runners and their "good-looking" mothers at the same time.
