2008 Summer Olympics Oscar Pistorius

Appeals ban


Pistorius appeals to the Court of Arbitrations for Sport and is represented by the law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf. Statement:

I am very appreciative of the Court of Arbitration for Sport setting a schedule that will allow a decision in time for me to pursue my goal of qualifying for the Olympics. This case is important not just to me, but to all disabled persons who just ask for the chance to compete fairly on the sporting field with able-bodied athletes.
