    These splits can't be true unless I'm reading them wrong. According to the first split, Australia was a clear 3rd at the change over, over 10m in front of Russia and nearly 20m in front of Belgium as Thomas took the baton. I find it hard to believe Ben Offereins was in sub 45s shape let alone sub 44s.

    I have to assume that times have been taken from start to the finish line for the first leg then finish line to finish line for the rest (or similar) as it a rough guide each lane gets faster (very rough) in the first lap and the reverse in the second. I hope that makes sense?
    Continuing to learn is one thing in life that has to continue.

    DAEGU, South Korea | Thu Sep 1, 2011 11:07am IST

    DAEGU, South Korea (Reuters) - Double amputee Oscar Pistorius led off his 4x400 relay team at the world championships on Thursday and was "extremely proud" to help South Africa qualify for the final with a new national record.

    Pistorius, who runs with carbon fibre prosthetic blades in place of his lower legs, had been ordered to take the first leg by the IAAF to "avoid danger to other athletes".

    The 24-year-old delivered the baton smoothly to team mate Ofentse Mogawane, before Willem de Beer and Shane Victor brought South Africa home in third place behind the United States and Jamaica in the first heat.

    The team set a South Africa best of 2:59.21 to qualify.

    "It is unbelievable to be one of four names on a list to run a national record," a jubilant "Blade Runner" said. "I'm extremely proud. To make the final makes me even more happy."

    Britain, Germany, Belgium, Russia and Kenya also qualified for Friday's final in Daegu.'

    The South African's battle to overcome a series of legal and performance obstacles and become the first amputee to run at a major championships on his prosthetic limbs has made him a crowd favourite in South Korea.

    American LaShawn Merritt, who ran the anchor leg for his team, said he had no problem with Pistorius being allowed to compete at the world championships.

    "Not at all," he said. "After I go back and change I will congratulate him."

    Pistorius first competed against able-bodied athletes in 2007 but the IAAF then amended its rules to ban the use of "any technical device that incorporates springs, wheels or any other element that provides a user with an advantage over another athlete not using such a device".

    In the following year, the world governing body said scientific research had shown he enjoyed an advantage over able-bodied athletes and banned him from competitions held under their rules.

    However, the decision was over-ruled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), making Pistorius eligible for the 2008 Beijing Olympics although he was unable to qualify for the South African team, winning gold medals instead in the Paralympic 100, 200 and 400 metres.

    IAAF head Lamine Diack had said last week that Pistorius was a "particular case" and that he must run the first leg if he wanted to take part in the relay.

    "The only thing we said to the South African federation is that if he wants to run in the relay, he must run the first leg to avoid danger to other athletes," he said.

    On the 1st leg splits & Oscar's difficulty backing up I'd say he's gone & Van Zyl is in for tonight's final!
