Comical Oscar

September 11, 2012 at 8:08 am Leave a comment

It may not have been the Paralympics that South African Oscar Pistorius hoped for, but he has achieved another first outside of the Games.

He has made his way into the long running legendary British comic the Beano. He has however been re-named Oscar Victorious in the comic, which also featured Heptathlon Gold Medal winner from Great Britain Jessica Ennis.

Victorius apparently joins Dennis the Menace and his dog Gnasher and is helped when Gnasher bites off one of his opponents shorts.

Editor Mike Stirling was quoted as saying “When people told Oscar he couldn’t be an athlete due to his disability, he ignored them and in that respect he’s a lot like Dennis, who never does as he is told.”
