ESPN to Release 'The Life and Times of Oscar Pistorius' As Four-Part 30 for 30 Documentary

ESPN is planning to release a four-part 30 for 30 documentary on South African Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius, according to a release. All four-parts of The Life and Trials of Oscar Pistorius will be released on ESPN+ on Sept. 27.

Pistorius was a double-amputee sprinter who inspired many by competing in the 400 meters at the 2012 London Olympics. In the early hours of Valentine's Day in 2013, Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his home after claiming that he mistook her for a home invader.

Pistorius was initially convicted of manslaughter, but that was later overturned and replaced with a murder conviction by the South African Supreme Court in 2015.
