oscar pistorius sponsored by nike Meet Oscar Pistorius on Friday evening
at the Ready To Run Cocktail Party, Emperors Palace
(www.oscarpistorius.co.za)

A record entry of 41 nominations has been received for the “buzziest” race on the calendar. There were 102 subscriptions for the race following last year’s Ready to Run Sale, and not far short of half of these have made the entry stage. This is a marvellous response to a sale which is billed as offering “the best odds in the World”, and of getting a run for a stake of this sort.
