In December 2015, Otto Bock invited Heinrich Popow, Paralympic 100m Gold Medallist and World Champion to conduct the first ever ‘Running Clinic’ in India. Over three days Heinrich worked with 12 energetic Indian amputees, teaching them fitness and running techniques while sharing his own inspirational story. All of the participants, as well as everybody at Ottobock re-learned the magic of determination, healthy living, positivity and working with our community.

South Africa’s Oscar Pistorius made history when he became first double amputee to compete in an athletic event at Olympics 2012 in London, and he went upto semi finals, running on his both artificial legs! Initially banned from international competition on the plea that the artificial legs gives him extra advantage over the abled bodied athletes, Oscar appealed against the ruling and became the first amputee to compete in Olympics.
