This evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" revisits an interview with Oscar Pistorius from late 2012

As new details emerge in the case surrounding Oscar Pistorius and the shooting death of his girlfriend, South African model Reeva Steenkamp, this evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" revisits a 2012 interview the host conducted with the man dubbed "Blade Runner."

Months prior to being wrapped up in a scandal that has left the Olympian charged with murder, Pistorius sat down with Piers Morgan in studio for an honest and engaging interview.

Having gained worldwide attention as the first Paralympian to compete in the able-bodied Olympics, the man who had both his legs amputated below the knees as a toddler shared his thoughts on being viewed as a role model:

"I think it's a massive blessing," he said. "And, obviously, being an international sportsman, there's a lot of responsibility that comes with that."

As part of a conversation that today feels fairly ironic, the 26-year-old spoke about dealing with his disability, and helping to teach and inspire the next generation:

"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 spoke 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, then tune in this evening at 9 as guest host Ashleigh Banfield revisits various portions of the "Piers Morgan Interview" conducted long before a fateful shooting which left Steenkamp dead, and Pistorius with a very uncertain future.
