| No Comments

Oscar Pistorius wants to train again and recently went back to visit his regular track in South Africa's capital, reported news sources.

Pistorius, the Olympian runner, is charged with murder for the Feb. 14 shooting death of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, reported Fox News.

Peet Van Zyl, Pistorius' agent, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Pistorius met with him and coach Ampic Louw on Tuesday to discuss a return to running, reported Fox News.

There was still no decision on an exact date for his return, but during their meeting Pistorius was "definitely keen to get back on the track to resume training," Van Zyl said, reported USA Today.

"He hasn't trained at all since the incident and you can't expect him to go into competition. More important, mentally he is not there yet, he is some way off," Van Zyl said, reported USA Today.

Pistorius has been released on bail. His next court appearance is June 4, reported Fox News.
