Apparently Pistorius had to wear a shorter pair than was possible for him in order to compete in the regular Olympics and he therefore had to remain in them for the current ones.

So he 'shot himself in the foot', pardon the bad pun, and now he wants the rule changed.

The longer pair that others wore in the current games may give the others an advantage, but that's why he couldn't wear them in the regular games.

Its his problem as he thought he could do both with his shorter legs, but he can't.
