Leading up to SportsCentres Year In Review on Christmas Eve, TSN and TSN.ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at one of the most shocking sports stories in recent years - Olympic sprinter Oscar Pistorious being charged with murder. Oscar Pistorius was one of the feel-good figures of 2012. The Blade Runner became the first amputee runner to compete at an Olympic Games and carried the South African flag at the closing ceremony in London. His competitors sought his bib after they finished racing him and Pistorius embodied the type of anythings possible spirit that the Olympics cling to as a good will event. That all changed on Valentines Day of 2013, when word came out of South Africa that Pistorius had been charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. The shocking details of the incident would come to light in early reports as well as a bail hearing that started five days later. Pistoriuss defence argued that the then-26-year-old got up in the middle of the night to confront what he believed to be an intruder in his Pretoria home. The sprinter got up and fired four shots through his locked bathroom door, hitting Steenkamp three times and killing her. After a change in investigators (due to pending attempted murder charges against officer Hilton Botha himself), the prosecution appealed for bail, painting Pistorius as a man of means who could flee South Africa. The verdict came down on February 22: Pistorius was granted bail with Magistrate Desmond Nair stating, "The issue before me is whether this accused, being who is and the assets he has (here), would seek to duck and dive all over the world." "I cannot find that he is a flight risk," he would conclude, leaving Pistorius free from jail time in the months leading up to his March 2014 trial. Pistorius would return to the track in June, resuming training in what his agent Peet van Zyl described as a "very emotional" and "bittersweet" experience.

BOSTON -- The names that Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge didnt mention said all anyone needed to know about how he views the teams future. After trading up three spots to get Gonzaga 7-footer Kelly Olynyk in the NBA draft on Thursday night, Ainge described him as a complementary player who will fit in well with Rajon Rondo, Avery Johnson and Jeff Green. No mention of the teams biggest stars, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. "Cant talk about it," Ainge said when the omission was pointed out to him. But asked if there were any untradeable players on the roster, he said, "If Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were traded, I guess everybodys tradable." According to a person with knowledge of the talks, the Celtics and Nets were nearing completion of a deal that would send Garnett and Pierce to Brooklyn in exchange for a package that included three first-round draft picks. The person confirmed the talks to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the details were to remain private. Although the details were not final -- the deal cannot be submitted to the NBA office until next month -- the Celtics were expected to get Gerald Wallace, the expiring contract of Kris Humphries and one other player while sending Jason Terry to Brooklyn. The deal would complete the breakup of the core that brought Boston its NBA-record 17th championship in 2008. The process began earlier this week when the Celtics traded coach Doc Rivers to the Los Angeles Clippers for a first-round draft pick in 2015. Boston and Los Angeles had discussed a deal for Garnett, who has a no-trade clause but was expected to waive it to remain with Rivers. But NBA commissioner David Stern said coaches could not be dealt for active players -- as opposed to draft choices -- and nixed any future deals between the Celtics and Clippers. Instead, the Celtics talked to Brooklyn. The inclusion of Pierce, who is due $15 million next season, and the possibility of swapping a rebuilding team for a contender was expected to encourage Garnett to go along. "Thats what Danny wants to do is rebuild," Rivers said from Clippers draft headquarters. "Its sad to see everybody leave Boston. You just want them to go someplace where they have a chance to win, and they have." After winning five straight Atlantic Division titles, the Celtics tumbled down the Eastern Conference standings this season, dropping all the way to thee No.dddddddddddd 7 seed before being eliminated by the New York Knicks in the first round. Ainge has said he wanted to avoid the precipitous fall and long rebuilding process in the 1990s that followed the aging of the original Big Three of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish -- his teammates on the teams that won it all in 1984 and 86. The Celtics were no closer to a title -- and in the midst of the longest championship drought in franchise history -- when Ainge arrived in 2003. He rode them into the draft lottery, and when the ping pong balls failed to deliver a star, he traded for Garnett and Ray Allen to join Pierce in a New Big Three that won the NBA title in its first year and returned to the finals two years later. But the team regressed after losing in the 2010 finals in seven games, and in the first-round loss to the Knicks this spring, Pierce and Garnett looked worn down. That convinced Rivers that his future was elsewhere, and Garnett and Pierce arent far behind. Instead, the Celtics begin their rebuilding around Rondo, the one player Ainge said he was not looking to trade. They also have Bradley joining him in the backcourt and Green to fill Pierces role, and now Olynyk to join Jared Sullinger at power forward after Garnetts gone. "I think were in a much better place than we were when I got here 10 years ago," Ainge said. "Our objective is to do it less painfully and to do it with more speed." Ainge sent the No. 16 pick and two future second-rounders to the Dallas Mavericks to get Olynyk, who was fifth in voting for the Wooden Award. Olynyk averaged 17.8 points and 7.3 rebounds while shooting 63 per cent from the field while leading Gonzaga to a 32-3 season. Ainge said Olynyk was athletic, playing quarterback for his high school football team. "I dont know too many players who played quarterback in high school as a 7-footer," Ainge said. The Celtics entered the night without a second-round pick, but they bought the No. 53 overall selection from the Indiana Pacers for cash and used it to pick centre Colton Iverson from Colorado State. A person with knowledge of the deal confirmed the transaction Thursday night on condition of anonymity because it was not yet official. Iverson is a 7-foot, 255-pound centre who started his career at Minnesota. Last season, after transferring to Colorado State, he led the team in scoring with 14.2 points and rebounding at 9.8. ' ' '
