'Blade Runner' Pistorius finishes last in 400 semifinal
The first amputee to compete in track at the Olympics never stood a chance and finished the race on his fiber carbon blades in 46.54 seconds, .95 of a second behind winner Kirani James of Grenada.
Still, world champion Kirani James immediately walked over to Pistorius after the race and asked for his name bib as a souvenir.
Pistorius is still expected to run the 4x400 relays, which start Thursday. Last year, Pistorius and South Africa won the silver at the world championships.
