Yes. Oscar Pistorius is by far the most famous example, competing in the men's 400m at the 2012 Summer Olympics. Other examples are Natalia Partyka who competed in the women's table tennis at the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, and Natalie du Toit who competed in the women's 10 km swimming race at the 2008 Summer Olympics.
