A little while back i posted a story on Oscar Pistorius, the runner with carbon fiber lower legs, and whether or not he would be able to compete in the 2008 beijing olympics. the IAFF has concluded that his artificial limbs do provide an unfair advantage (less wind resistance), and he is thus uneligible to run against non-handicapped athletes. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/more/07/16/bc.run.iaaf.amputeespri.ap/index.html?cnn=yes
