Wired’s excellent sports blog, Playbook, notes Oscar Pistorius – “Blade Runner” – lost his first race in seven years.

The double amputee fell to Jerome Singleton in the 100m race at the International Paralympic Committee Athletics World Championships despite picking himself to defeat the Beijing Paralympic silver medalist.

The American Singelton ran a 11.43 and won in a photo finish.

Pistorius, who already claimed gold in the 200m, hopes to race in the 2012 Olympics in London. Perhaps he can bring Singleton along?
