20 Feb '13: Pistorius Reaction and Manteo Mitchell
The international headlines this week have been dominated by the arrest of Paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius, charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in South Africa. Athletes at Saturday's Indoor Athletics International in Birmingham tell their initial reactions to the story. We also hear from women's 60 metres winner at the event, Murielle Ahouré, world leader at the distance this year on her hopes for the coming season. 400 metres runner Manteo Mitchell helped the USA team qualify for the 4x400 metres relay final at the Olympic Games in London last year. Nothing special in that, except he did it after breaking his leg halfway round his lap. He tells us his remarkable story, how he kept going despite the pain to see his team through to the final. Your host this week is Adrian Barnard.
