Agent: Pistorius Says He Wants to Train Again

Wednesday, 03 Apr 2013 09:25 AM

JOHANNESBURG — Oscar Pistorius' agent says the double-amputee athlete has indicated to his management team that he wants to train again.

Peet van Zyl told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Pistorius met with him and coach Ampie Louw on Tuesday to discuss a return to running. The Olympian is charged with murder for the Feb. 14 shooting death of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Van Zyl says Pistorius told them at the meeting that he now was eager to train. The agent says Louw also wanted to get his athlete into "some kind of routine."

Van Zyl says the decision on when exactly he gets back on track still rests with Pistorius, who hasn't trained for over two months.

Pistorius has been released on bail. His next court appearance is June 4.
