Oscar Pistorius vs Horse [01:31]
'Blade Runner' Oscar Pistorius outruns horse in race! SOUTH African Oscar Pistorius beat Arab horse Maserati in the 'run like the wind' race. The 26-year-old Pistorius, known as the Blade Runner because of the carbon fibre blades he runs on after having his legs amputated below the knee before he was aged one because of a congenital condition, beat the horse over 200 metres. Pistorius, who reached the 400m semi-finals in London and also ran in the 4x400m relay final to realise his boyhood dream of competing at the able-bodied Games, took full advantage of starting 15 metres in front of Maserati, who ruined its chances of winning by making a terrible start. The race was not the first time athletes have competed against horses with some of the most notable champions such as 1936 Olympics hero Jesse Owens and 1992 Olympic 100m gold medallist Linford Christie also going up against their four-legged friends, who generally out-paced their human rivals.

Boro won 3-0 with 2 goals from Moreno and 1 from Craig Hignett. Look out for Bernie Slaven playing for Darlo.
