JOHANNESBURG: Oscar Pistorius’ agent has canceled all future track races so the double-amputee Olympian can focus on the murder charge against him, underscoring the possibility the disabled sports icon might never again run competitively on his famous carbon fiber blades.
Pistorius is defending himself against allegations he murdered his model girlfriend by shooting her several times in his upscale house on Valentine’s Day morning.
Reeva Steenkamp died from gunshot wounds suffered inside Pistorius’ home in the predawn hours of Thursday.
Pistorius was arrested and charged with her murder the same day. His family denies he murdered her.
Pistorius has been in jail since Friday following the shocking developments at his villa in a gated community in Pretoria’s eastern suburbs where Steenkamp was shot dead.
