I love the irony that he won't be allowed to compete against able-bodied athletes because he's got an advantage (which is his disability). I also love the idea that paralympic sprinters may soon be running faster than able-bodied sprinters.

I'm with mummy/crit - and I do loves me some irony - but hate that they ruled as they did. Why segregate because of "advantages?" That's as absurd as saying Kenyans couldn't race with Americans b/c of advantages...
