With all the training I have had to cut down on my subjects, Hopefully, I’ll finish by the time I’m 30!” Asked by a journalist for his “sporting motto,” he said: “You’re not disabled by the disabilities you have; you are able by the abilities you have.”

He claimed he had mistaken Steenkamp for an intruder hiding in the bathroom.

He was arrested and charged with murder. At his trial the following year, Pistorius was found not guilty of murder but guilty of culpable homicide. He received a five-year prison sentence for culpable homicide and a concurrent three-year suspended sentence for a separate reckless endangerment conviction.

In July 2016, Judge Thokozile Masipa extended Pistorius’s sentence to six years. On appeal by the state for a longer prison sentence, the Supreme Court of Appeal increased the prison term to a total of 15 years. Pistorius will be released on parole on January 5, 2024.
