      No! There is the Paralympics for him and others with disabilities

      No. (Assuming its the runner with no leg below the knee)

      You can engineer the springs to give an unfair advantage. You cant engineer and design the structure of a normal leg.

      Even so he's awesome.

      This was exactly why he was stopped from competing before as they said his blades assisted him too much, so they must have re engineered them to give less spring back.

      I remember watching a documentary on him a few years back

      Exactly. Would you be allowed into a worlds strongest man comp with hydraulic legs?? Same principle imo.

      Only if able bodied people can run in the paralympics. Same with woman competing in men's events-only if men can go in woman's.

      I believe his legs have been designed not to give him an advantage his 'legs' have been tested time and time again, you think the Olympics who spend millions on testing for doping would over look an engineEred limb??
