Oscar Pistorius, l'athlète handicapé surnommé "Blade Runner", premier double amputé à avoir participé à des jeux Olympiques avec les valides l'été dernier à Londres, a été inculpé de "meurtre" pour avoir tué sa petite amie, la mannequin Reeva Steenkamp, jeudi matin dans sa résidence de Pretoria.

Star dans son pays, légende de l'athlétisme mondial et exemple pour des millions de jeunes sportifs, Pistorius devait comparaître jeudi devant un juge de la capitale sud-africaine.

Selon une porte-parole de la police interrogée par une télévision sud-africaine, le parquet s'apprêtait à refuser une libération sous caution. "Il y a eu par le passé des rapports faisant état de disputes familiales au domicile de l'accusé", a déclaré la porte-parole Denise Beukes.

"Je peux confirmer que le suspect a été inculpé pour meurtre", a ensuite indiqué une autre porte-parole, Katlego Mogale.

Cette formulation exclut la thèse d'un accident, alors que la presse avait dans un premier temps émis l'hypothèse d'une erreur: Pistorius aurait confondu la jeune mannequin Reeva Steenkamp avec un cambrioleur.

"La seule personne qui peut nous dire ce qu'il s'est passé, c'est Oscar lui-même", a déclaré son père Henke, joint par téléphone par l'AFP.

"Nous n'avons pas beaucoup d'informations à ce stade", a-t-il ajouté, "je ne l'ai pas vu, il est avec la police et l'affaire est entre les mains des autorités. Evidemment nous sommes sous le choc".

Le drame est survenu vers 4h00 du matin en ce jour de la Saint-Valentin dans la résidence ultra-sécurisée où vit le champion.

La victime, un top-model âgée de 30 ans au bras de laquelle il était apparu en public pour la première fois en novembre, a été touchée par quatre balles et est décédée sur place, selon la police.

Très active sur Twitter, Reeva Steenkamp reçoit aujourd'hui de multiples messages d'amour sur ce réseau social. Un mot-clic, #ripreeva, regroupe la plupart de ces messages.

Parmi ses derniers tweets, certains liés à la Saint-Valentin ajoutent à la tristesse de la twittosphère.

That sounds amazing! Wow that's what it's all about! It should be a day of love for everyone :) may it be blessed!

"Je vais vous raconter mon histoire"

Oscar Pistorius, surnommé "Blade Runner" en raison des deux lames en carbone en forme de pattes de félin avec lesquelles il court, est entré dans l'histoire de l'athlétisme mondial aux jeux Olympiques de Londres, en devenant le premier champion paralympique double amputé à s'aligner dans les épreuves pour valides.

Il n'a pas réussi à s'approcher du podium, s'arrêtant au stade des demi-finales.

Quelques jours plus tard, il a remporté l'or sur le 400 m paralympique. Quatre ans auparavant à Pékin, le sud-africain avait glané trois médailles d'or, sur 100, 200 et 400 m paralympiques.

Oscar était né sans péronés, et ses parents avaient dû se résoudre à le faire amputer sous les genoux à l'âge de 11 mois.

Il avait appris à marcher avec des prothèses, et a toujours tenu depuis son enfance à se mesurer aux sportifs valides.

Jannie Brooks, son préparateur physique, avait raconté récemment à l'AFP qu'il avait travaillé avec lui pendant près de six mois avant de s'apercevoir qu'il était amputé des deux jambes.

Il avait 16 ans lorsqu'il est venu s'inscrire avec un groupe d'adolescents aux sessions de préparation physique. Il n'a rien dit de son handicap.

"Lorsqu'il a commencé avec moi, c'était le début de l'hiver, les gars portaient toujours une combinaison à jambes longues (...) Il faisait exactement tout au même rythme que les autres, il n'avançait jamais une excuse pour éviter un exercice, il faisait tout à fond", a raconté le coach.

"On travaillait dur (...) on faisait de l'explosivité (...) et une fois, on faisait un exercice, et j'ai vu qu'il ne descendait pas aussi bas que les autres sur ses appuis".

"Je lui ai dit: "écoute, il faut que tu descendes un peu plus bas" et il m'a répondu "écoute, c'est le maximum que je peux faire". J'ai demandé pourquoi, et là, il m'a dit: "Ok, je vais vous raconter mon histoire...""

Pistorius apologised on September 3 for the timing of his outburst after losing his T44 200m title, but insisted there was an issue with large prosthetics lengthening an amputee's stride. Pistorius, the star of the London 2012 Paralympics, was sensationally beaten into the silver medal position by Brazil's Alan Oliveira on September 2, in a result that stunned the Olympic Stadium. The 25-year-old then hit out at the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), claiming it was not a fair race and he was at a disadvantage caused by artificial leg length, as the regulations allowed athletes to make themselves 'unbelievably high'.
