The race was won by American Angelo Taylor with a time of 45.25 seconds.
Pistorius has been the subject of criticism because of claims that his artificial limbs give him an advantage over runners with natural ankles and feet.
2004 Summer Paralympics: 100 m (T44) – Bronze; 200 m (T44) – Gold 2008 Summer Paralympics: 100 m (T44) – Gold, 200 m (T44) – Gold; 400 m (T44) – Gold 2012 Summer Paralympics: 200 m (T44) – Silver; 4 × 100 m relay – Gold; Men's 400 m (T44) – Gold Both of Pistorius' feet had been amputated when he was 11 months old due to a congenital defect.
When he was born he was missing the outside of both feet along with both fibula bones in his legs.
After a two-day hearing, on , CAS upheld Pistorius' appeal and the IAAF council decision was revoked with immediate effect.
The CAS panel unanimously determined that Brüggemann tested Pistorius' biomechanics only at full-speed when he was running in a straight line (unlike a real 400-metre race); that the report did not consider the disadvantages that Pistorius suffers at the start and acceleration phases of the race; and that overall there was no evidence that he had any net advantage over non-disabled athletes.
In December, Brüggemann told Die Welt newspaper that Pistorius "has considerable advantages over athletes without prosthetic limbs who were tested by us. I did not expect it to be so clear." Pistorius called the decision "premature and highly subjective" and pledged to continue fighting for his dream.
His manager, Peet van Zylm said his appeal would be based on advice from experts in the United States who had said that the report "did not take enough variables into consideration".
On 26 March 2007, the IAAF amended its competition rules to include a ban on the use of "any technical device that incorporates springs, wheels or any other element that provides a user with an advantage over another athlete not using such a device".
In response to the announcement, Pistorius said: "My focus throughout this appeal has been to ensure that disabled athletes be given the chance to compete and compete fairly with non-disabled athletes.
I look forward to continuing my quest to qualify for the Olympics." To have a chance of representing South Africa at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing in the individual 400-metre race, Pistorius had to attain the Olympic "A" standard time of 45.55 seconds; the "B" qualifying time of 45.95 seconds, which applies if no other athlete from his country achieved the faster time, did not apply.
At his trial the following year, Pistorius was found not guilty of murder, but guilty of culpable homicide.
