Oscar Pistorius could still compete at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo, a sports chief has said.
Tubby Reddy, CEO of South Africa’s Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee, says he would have ‘no problem’ with Pistorius competing.
He told the Daily Mail: “He would have paid his debt to society and will be back in society, living as a normal South African citizen. There is no rule that says he wouldn’t be able to participate.
“Yes, the sentence he has been given has divided opinion there are those who are happy about it and there are those who are unhappy, and you will always have that.
“But if he is out on parole, as it seems he will be before then, and qualifies for selection then I don’t see how there can be a problem – why not?”
