    Geoff Turner of San Francisco lost his leg in a motorcycle accident two decades ago.

    But with prosthetic technology, he's learned to run in marathons and more.

    Back then, he had no role models.

    Today, he's got Oscar Pistorius to look up to. The South African Pistorius is a double amputee, and is the first person with no legs to compete in the Olympics this summer in London.
