Pistorius hopes for eventual return to track

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Oscar Pistorius wants to train again and recently went back to visit his regular track in South Africa’s capital, the double-amputee athlete’s agent told The AP.

There was still no decision on an exact time-frame for the multiple Paralympic champion’s return to regular running, but Pistorius told agent Peet van Zyl and longtime coach Ampie Louw at a Tuesday meeting that he was “definitely keen to get back on track to resume training,” the agent said.

Pistorius last trained on a track over two months ago, and his last competitive race was his victory in the 400 meters final at the London Paralympics in September last year.
