Last week, Oscar Pistorius was granted the right to leave South Africa so he can compete in races, and considering that it was reported that he doesn't plan on competing anytime soon, his family just revealed that he's NOT training either.
The Paralympian's fam said that Oscar is "not back on any official training program" right now, but this might "change in the future."
"At this point Oscar is still in an extremely traumatized state and has made it clear to all of us that he is not able or willing to even contemplate this issue at this stage.
Against this backdrop, we can confirm that we did have a meeting with Oscar yesterday where various family members and his trainer were present. We all encouraged him to get back onto the track to help stabilize him emotionally. Oscar has been out running on a number of isolated occasions in the days following the relaxation of his bail conditions, but each time has been very difficult and he has 'struggled immensely' with the decision to even leave the house."
After allegedly murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day, we can see why Pistorius wants to be cooped up. Losing a loved one is hard enough, but it's especially tough when you're the reason that they're gone.
