Good preparation for London, his agent, Peet van Zyl, says with a smile.
So it's in Gemona that Pistorius will put the final pieces in place for his high-profile — maybe the highest profile — debut at the Olympics.
"There's a big difference in qualifying for the games and being at the top," Pistorius said. "I'm going to go there to do my best and I'll be content if I can run close to my personal best, and hopefully a personal best. I'll go with my 'A' game and take my fight with me and see how well I'll do."
On Tuesday, Pistorius finished second, in 46.56 seconds, in the 400 at his final Olympic warm-up race in Lignano, Italy, well behind Calvin Smith of the United States in 45.52.
"My time wasn't among the best. But I'm good physically and mentally," Pistorius said afterward. "I've used a lot of energy in these past few days, both in training and with the media because of my participation in the Olympics."
In his down time, he's already becoming a star.
At the small hotel where he lives, Pistorius gets a lunchtime surprise.
He smiles when the family that runs the hotel gives him a cake decorated with the five Olympic rings. He smiles when he poses for pictures with them. He even smiles when he displays pictures on his cell phone of his legs, bleeding and raw, after the recent African championships.
He'll almost certainly have a more serious expression on his face when he steps onto the track in London.
And no matter the outcome, he'll surely be smiling after finally getting the chance to achieve his Olympic dream.
