Oscar Pistorius' agent has told the Associated Press that this year's athletics world championships in Moscow could be "on the radar" after a judge ruled that he is able to leave South Africa to compete in international track meets.

Based on this (judge's decision), and if he is up for it and qualifies, the world championships will definitely be on the radar.
He's going to be the one that determines running and training, it's his call.
He's the one under all the pressure for the court case and grieving for Reeva.
At the end of the day we'll have to see what governing bodies will say. It will be interesting to see.
If they don't allow him to run and he walks out (of court) a free man, there might be a problem.
