Oscar Pistorius has joined another elite club since falling into legal trouble, as one of the few athletes Nike has dropped over off-the-field issues. Pistrorius' connection with Nike was made the more glaring due to a 2007 commercial with the text "I am the bullet in the chamber", which has been removed after he was accused of murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Since then the company has continued to distance itself from the sprinter. Here are the other infamous athletes whose legal woes left Nike hurrying to get away.
