prosthetics an unfair advantage?

The South African had his legs amputated below the knee when he was 11 months old, yet on Sunday will line up alongside world and Olympic champion Jeremy Warriner in the 400m at the Norwich Union British Grand Prix in Sheffield
He will run on j-shaped carbon-fibre prosthetics that have inevitably earned him the nickname "Blade Runner".
Unfair advantage! No, No, No it is not an unfair advantage. That is so stupid for anyone to think that. I think this guy should be applauded for trying to overcome a handicap and do something he likes. It takes guts to do what this guy is doing.
