South African Paralympic Gold Medalist Goes On Trial

3 years ago

A little over a year ago a tragic news broke out in South Africa on Valentine`s Day. Oscar Pistorius known as `Blade Runner` allegedly shot and killed his South African model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, after mistaking her for a burglar at the couple`s home inside a gated community. Since then, the six-times Paralympic gold medalist and first double amputee to compete in the Olympics at 2012, Pistorius, 27, admits firing four shots through a locked bathroom door and insisted he acted in self-defense after mistaking Steenkamp for an intruder. A lot of unresolved questions will begin to be answered on Monday, March 3, when Pistorius goes on trial on a charge of premeditated murder. Prosecutors are saying Pistorius intentionally shot Steenkamp, 29, in the couple`s bathroom on Valentine`s Day during a heated argument. Pistorius also faces three firearms charges and If convicted he could spend the rest of his life in prison.
