Pistorius, a double-amputee below the knee, became the first amputee sprinter to compete at the Olympic Games when he took part in the 2012 Olympics in London.
Former South African sprint runner Oscar Pistorius's jail sentence has been increased to 13 years and five months for the murder of model and celebrity girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, it emerged on Friday.
The Supreme Court of Appeal ruled his sentence be increased to 15 years, less time already served.
Pistorius was originally convicted of culpable homicide - the equivalent of manslaughter - but the appeal court upgraded his conviction.
Pistorius claimed he thought she was an intruder.
The BBC reports that a lower court had "justified the six-year sentence by citing mitigating circumstances such as rehabilitation and remorse".
"They just feel that their trust in the justice system has been confirmed this morning", rep Tania Koen said.
But National Prosecuting Authority spokesman Luvuyo Mfaku said he was pleased with the Supreme Court's ruling.
"But, if one looks at what the law states, and given the fact that murder does carry the minimum sentence of 15 years in prison, I think the decision could be vindicated".
Pistorius, 30, shot and killed Reeva Steenkamp in the early hours of Valentine's Day in 2013 when he fired four times through the door of his bedroom toilet.
"This is an emotional thing for [The Steenkamp family]".
Pistorius' brother, Carl, wrote on Twitter: "Shattered". That means that from Friday he has 13 years and five months.
Pistorius, who turned 31 on Wednesday, is being held at the Atteridgeville Correctional Centre on the outskirts of the South African capital, Pretoria. Pistorius was moved from the high security Kgosi Mampuru II Prison in central Pretoria to Atteridgeville, which houses prisoners sentenced to six years or less.
"He is a person well-trained in the use of firearms and was holding his weapon at the ready in order to shoot", the court's decision read.
