Pistorius wants to resume training

OSCAR-PISTORIUOSJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, April 3 – Paralympian sprint star Oscar Pistorius is considering resuming training following the easing of the stringent bail terms imposed after he was charged with murdering his girlfriend, his manager said Thursday.

“He said he is considering coming back into training,” manager Peet Van Zyl told AFP after talks with the double amputee.

“Obviously he thinks it is good for him to go back into training and put some form of routine back into his life,” Van Zyl said.

Pistorius, 26, whose athletics career has been on hold since the Valentine’s Day killing of 29-year-old Reeva Steenkamp, last month appealed against a raft of bail conditions he said were unfair and unwarranted.

A judge relaxed most of them, allowing him to travel overseas if he wants to compete in international races.

It is immediately unclear as to when he might return to the track, but Van Zyl said “if he feels like tomorrow morning, he gets up and we will do it .. .there’s no specific time frame.”

Pistorius may be eyeing the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Championships which take place in Moscow in August.

The double amputee known as “Blade Runner” faces a trial later this year on a charge of premeditated murder.

He claims he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder when he shot her several times through a locked bathroom door with a gun he kept under his bed, but the state argues it was pre-meditated murder.
