Doha - In this amazing video, South Africa's "Bladerunner", Oscar Pistorius took on a new challenge on Wednesday, and it was the horse that came away with a long face.
Still feeling fresh from competing against the world's best athletes this summer in the London Summer Olympics 2012, "Bladerunner" Oscar Pistorius decided to take on a brand new challenge.
You can see Olympic runner Pistorius, a double amputee, nicknamed the "Blade Runner" because of his carbon fibre running blades, race against the Arabian stud "Maserati" in the Qatari capital of Doha - and win.
The race was over 115 meters, in the ‘Run Like The Wind’ challenge at the Aspire Zone outdoor circuit.
After the race, Pistorius said: "It wasn't about who won today, it was about just coming out here and showing people that those with disabilities are not to be stereotyped against."
"Thanks to everybody who came out here, we had a good night and hopefully that will do a lot to change perceptions of people with disabilities in this region."
