The Court of Arbitration for Sport has ruled that South Africa's superstar doube-amputee sprinter, Oscar Pistorius, is eligible to compete for a slot on the Olympic team. That's the able-bodied Olympics, not the Paralympics, where Pistorius has already established the world record for the 400-meter run for double amputees. He still has to post a qualifying time to run in the individual event, but he could be named to the 4x400-meter relay team without a qualifying time. All in all, a great moment for him and for the Paralympic movement, where some of sport's best stories happen. No doubt watching Pistorius this summer as he competes in both able-bodied and Paralympic meets will be one of them.
