Fresh from competing against the world's best athletes this summer, South Africa's "Bladerunner" Oscar Pistorius took on a new challenge on Wednesday.
The double amputee raced against a horse in the Qatari capital Doha - and won. He got off to a good start and, in a downhill finish, crossed the line with more than a second to spare.
"It wasn't about who won today, it was just about coming out here and really just showing people that those with disabilities are not to be stereotyped against," Pistorius said.
