OSCAR PISTORIUS ARRIVING IN COURT ROOM DURING BAIL HEARING 4. PISTORIUS STORY: The uncle of "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius said his "heartbroken" nephew has no intention of travelling overseas anytime soon and a return to the competitive track is also some time away. A South African judge on Thursday (March 28) relaxed bail conditions imposed after the Paralympic and Olympic track star was charged with murdering his girlfriend on Valentine's Day. Judge Bert Bam said the 26-year-old, a double amputee who won worldwide fame last year when he reached the semi-finals of the 400metres in the London Olympics, could have his passport back and no longer needed to report to a probation officer. The relaxation of initially tough bail conditions for Pistorius opens up the possibility that he could return to competition this year, including the Athletics World Championships in August. However, Arnold Pistorius said Oscar would not be returning to the competitive track anytime soon. "Not in the near future, not realistically. No, I don't think so. In the future - perhaps, yes, I would like to say that." Arnold Pistorius added that family members were encouraging Oscar to return to training, fearing a prolonged absence could affect ruin his career. "The knowledgeable people tell me that if a super athlete does not train for a year then he will never get back to where he was. So we try to convince him to get back into training.," he said. Pistorius's agent Peet van Zyl has said it is too early to say whether Pistorius is in the right shape physically and mentally to return to the track. After his arrest, Pistorius cancelled scheduled appearances in March, April and May in Australia, Brazil, the United States and Britain. "Oscar has no intention to travel overseas now, he needs his family. I can't see him getting along without the support of his family, I do not see that," said Arnold Pistorius added. Steenkamp's murder stunned South Africa and the millions around the world who held Pistorius up as hero who triumphed over adversity to compete with able-bodied athletes at the highest levels of sport. Prosecutors said he committed premeditated murder when he fired four shots into a locked toilet door, hitting 29-year-old Steenkamp as she cowered on the other side. She suffered gunshot wounds to her head, hip and arm. Pistorius has said the killing was a tragic mistake and that he had mistaken Steenkamp for an intruder and opened fire in a blind panic.
