Me and my family went to see Oscar Pistorius compete in Manchester 2009. After the race Oscar ran away from reporters and fans (without anyone noticing really – he runs fast! ) and put his gold medal around my son’s neck and said: “This is for you champion” and then he ran right back. It happened so fast I could not even get a photo. My son, beaming with joy, said: “Did I win? .. Was I good?” We keep that medal in a safe place.
