My Pick: Oscar Pistorius

He is a world-class athlete who ignored everything a disability is supposed to be. I love that his mother would tell his brother, "Put on your shoes, and Oscar, you put on your legs, and let's go out, I don't want to hear another word about it." That's the whole attitude he has in life. It's not only him being the kind of person he is, but what he has accomplished with what most of us would call a handicap. It's just ... beyond.
