Pistorius misses qualifying time

Double-amputee runner Oscar Pistorius again missed South Africa’s qualifying time for the London Olympics, almost a second off the mark in winning a 400-meter race in Belgium.

Pistorius won at the EAP meet in Nivelles in 46.20 seconds, far off the standard of 45.30 he needs to get automatic qualification for the games.

He has at least one more chance to qualify at the African Championships in Benin next week.

Without running the qualifying time, Pistorius could also make the Olympics if he is included on South Africa’s 4×400 relay team.
