LONDON -- It was a wild scene at Olympic Stadium on Saturday morning, when South African Oscar Pistorius ran a heat in the 400 meters.
A sold-out stadium roared as Pistorius, who runs with fiber-carbon prostheses, qualified for Saturday's semifinals. The mixed zone, where reporters stand behind a metal barrier to interview athletes after a competition, was overflowing. Media members who couldn't get close to Pistorius were forced to tape his piped-in comments from a loudspeaker.
Who says being a journalist isn't glamorous?
