A Nike ad featuring Oscar Pistorius and the catchline “I am bullet in the chamber” has been removed from Pistorius’s Web site in the wake of the shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

Pistorius, who has been charged in connection with her death, is shown leaping from the starting blocks in the ad. The double-amputee Paralympic star, known as “Bladerunner,” is scheduled to appear in court Friday in South Africa.
