Newly released video shows double amputee and Olympian Oscar Pistorius firing weapons at a gun range before the athlete allegedly fatally shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last year.

The footage surfaced just three days before Pistorius, 27, will stand trial for the alleged murder, and it shows “South Africa’s Bladerunner” firing a shotgun and using a pistol to shoot a watermelon, which bursts on impact.

Ahead of the trial, the star athlete has recruited an O.J. Simpson-style dream team of lawyers and forensic experts, as TIME reported earlier this month.

For more on the trial, see the video above.

She should have paid attention to Paul McCartneys' marriage debacle.
