Picture of the week: “I am the bullet in the chamber”

The tragic story of Oscar Pistorius and the death of Reeva Steenkamp

 

Oscar Pistorius was a man many rightly came to admire. He achieved the unthinkable on the track and was, as his father, Henke, pointed out “a man strong beyond his years”. In an advert for Nike, he himself is quoted as saying:

 

“I was born without bones below the knee. I only stand 5ft 2. But this is the body I have been given. This is my weapon. How I conquer. How I wage my war. This is how I have broken the world record 49 times. How I became the fastest thing on legs. This is my weapon. This is how I fight”.

Our picture of the week is of another advertisement in which Pistorius featured for Nike. Titled, rather unfortunately, “I am the bullet in the chamber”, these are words that will now haunt the athlete forever more.

Whatever the truth is behind this tragic story, one person is dead and another’s life and career is now ruined. May the case of Oscar Pistorius be a lesson to us all.

  1. The similarities between Oscar and his father Henke Pistoruis are astonguising. Henke Pistoruis dated Anneline Kriel (former Miss World 1974) He was also involved in a shooting accident whilst in the company of Miss Kriel.
    He claimed at the time that he was cleaning his loaded firearm, he accidentally shot himself in the groin area. God knows how? RIP Reeva Steenkamp.

  2. Two young lives destroyed, both admired in their achievements.
    A sad loss to the younger generation who follow celebrities.
    No one should judge or be judged in life, this is tragic!
    Condolences to both families whilst coming to terms with what has
    transpired.

  3. A comprehension of the dynamics of Afrikanerdom, will give a better insight and understanding of the personality traits of Oscar Pistorius.
    The Afrikaner ruled South African politics with an iron fist from 1948-1994.
    The Afrikaner men are driven by a culture of masculinity and machismo, this is illustrated by the need for physical power and material wealth, gun ownership, fast cars, and gorgeous stunning girlfriends.
    Oscar had to overcompensate for his disability to be accepted by his peers during his early fundamental development years.
    The comparison between Oscar and his father Henke Pistorius is interesting and relevant.
    Oscar has dug himself deep into a hole. He has made a bed, that he will have to sleep in for the rest of his life.
    For that matter, I do feel sorry for him.
