4. Oscar Pistorius
Nicknamed ‘Blade Runner’ and ‘The Fastest Man With No Legs,” Oscar Pistorius is a former Paralympic champion. The South African had both his legs amputated as a baby but had a fine athletic career and even became a star in his own country. In 2012, he was the first double-leg amputee to feature at a Summer Olympics.
Unfortunately, it all goes downhill after that. He was arrested in 2014 for shooting his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the bathroom of their house. The prosecution was unable to prove it was murder but did convict him of culpable homicide. This was overturned and now he’s serving 13 years for murder.
