When I first got to meet Oscar Pistorius, I was surprised to learn that he wasn’t a movie star, but that he was a sports fanatic.
He had a tattoo on his right forearm, a sign of his devotion to the sport he loves.
Pistorius has been in prison since his trial on charges of murder and attempted murder in the 2012 shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, who was also his girlfriend at the time.
The 26-year-old is serving a seven-year sentence.
His lawyers have said that his actions were not murder, and he was never a threat to others, but many of his supporters say he should have been in jail.
