Pretoria: Star athlete Oscar Pistorius met South African probation officers on Monday and discussed conditions to restart training as he awaits trial for the murder of his girlfriend, a prisons spokesman said.

The sprinter met authorities at the Pretoria Magistrate's Court to discuss the terms of his release on bail, which was granted last Friday after more than a week in custody.

Prosecutors charge that Pistorius intentionally shot dead 29-year-old model and law graduate Reeva Steenkamp at his upmarket Pretoria home in the early hours of Valentine's Day in a case that has shocked the crime-plagued nation and the world.
