An athlete has been banned from the Paralympics after medical experts became suspicious of his claim to have two artificial legs when photographic evidence showed he still had two legs of his own.
"Athlete" with two artificial legs was actually a horse

apepper, you frustrate the shit out of me! You consistently come up with great, great ideas, then post them as 2 lines of text! It's not even enough for a NiB, but this is easily strong enough to develop into an FP. Please, please develop your ideas.
I think I'd end up with him testing positive for oats or something. And actually being shit at running, because he's more of a cart horse, or trained for gymkhana. I don't know, you could go anywhere with this. Please, have a go at a longer sub, I'm sure people would chip in. I'm up o my eyeballs with work at the moment, but someone must have time. 5 stars from me for the premise.
Yep - wot he said ape. Though I think you've turned out a few longer subs of late
Edit: Thought of a possible pantomime horse reference but see that you've raised the theme on another sub
Sorry! I got suddenly called away for some emergency programming.
I'll try and add some more text tomorrow... honest - I see it as the horse's agent getting annoyed that the doctor questioned him having four legs; "He's discriminated against; you wouldn't ban an athlete for having missing legs, so why not having extra ones."
The pantomime horse headline - 4 days too late.
The prejudice against quadropedia probably has its origins in 'Four legs good, two legs better' outcome of Orwell's Animal Farm
quadropedia was however a big hit for The Who
When asked whether he would like to comment on these accusations, the athlete replied 'neigh'.
