Athlete Oscar Pistorius was photographed by Kristen-Lee Moolman for the November 2011 cover image of GQ South Africa.
For the first time, A*Men is represented by a modern day hero, an exceptional athlete: Oscar Pistorius. A bold choice and one completely out of the ordinary. Born in Johannesburg in 1986, the new face of A*Men became a world class sprinter with carbon fiber artificial limbs. After losing his legs at eleven months old, he learned a different way of mastering balance and sublimated his disability through competition. After winning several medals at the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens, he became triple world record holder and triple Paralympic Champion in the 100, 200 and 400 meter races.
