“Paralympic superstar Oscar Pistorius was charged Thursday with the murder of his girlfriend who was shot inside his home in South Africa, a stunning development in the life of a national hero known as the Blade Runner for his high-tech artificial legs.
Reeva Steenkamp, a model who spoke out on Twitter against rape and abuse of women, was shot four times in the predawn hours in the home, in a gated community in the capital, Pretoria, police said.
A 9 mm pistol was recovered and a murder case opened against Pistorius.”

In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, many swimmers were wearing a full-torso polyurethane suits that compressed the body and increased buoyancy. That suit helped many swimmers break a number of world records, but it was a bit too good, and subsequently banned from international competition. So in 2009, Speedo had to start all over to create a suit in time for the 2012 games that would keep a competitive edge, while staying within the new international competition guidelines.
