Sprinter with prosthetics allowed to resume 2012 Olympic bid

Sprinter Oscar Pistorius, 21, who was born without fibulas, has been given the go-ahead to compete for a spot on the South African Olympic team after the Switzerland-based Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned an earlier ruling that Pistorius' prosthetic limbs give him an advantage. "I have been struggling to hide my smile for the last half an hour," Pistorius said. "The truth has come out. We have the opportunity once again to chase my dream of participating in an Olympics."
