Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam have created a new spot for Nike, featuring Oscar Pistorius, the South African paralympian sprinter who, through his bravery, grit and determination, is making the world rethink what it means to be an athlete.

Though he failed to qualify for Beijing, Pistorius has stated his goal to compete in the London 2012 Games.

The commercial tells Oscar's story through his own eyes and words, and focuses on the fact that whenever he has been told he can't achieve something due to his disability, he has gone on regardless and has become a highly accomplished athlete.

By championing his talents beyond athletics: his prowess at water-polo, rugby and motor-cross, defying the critics and naysayers at every turn -- the commercial highlights his achievements as even more extraordinary.
