In 2008, Pistorius was the only guy who could run under 22 seconds at 200 m. So I said I would run as fast as that in London. I practised; I trained.
Nobody who has even kicked a ball in the street likes losing.
People used to name me the Brazilian Pistorius. Thank God I'm not the Brazilian Pistorius any more. I'm Alan.
What I have to show, I show on the track.
The prostheses do not run the race on their own: there is an athlete who does the work, and the prosthetics do not make a significant difference to the time.
