TRACK AND FIELD
Oscar Pistorius could compete at this year’s world championships after a South African judge eased his bail restrictions and ruled Thursday that the athlete, who faces a murder trial for the death of his girlfriend, can travel overseas to run. The international athletics body said that if Pistorius qualifies it has no objections to him running — which could eclipse the stir last year when he became the first double amputee to compete at the Olympics. Pistorius’s agent said after the ruling that the world championships in Moscow in August could be a possibility. The 26-year-old could face a life sentence if found guilty of murder for the Valentine’s Day shooting of Reeva Steenkamp.
