Oscar Pistorius Banned From Olympics
Oscar Pistorius has been ruled ineligible to compete at this summer's Olympic Games because his prosthetic limbs give him an unfair advantage. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) said the double amputee's "cheetah" blades were technical aids in clear contravention of IAAF rules, effectively banning the South African, 21, from competing against able-bodied athletes. Pistorius' only course of action now appears to be an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
