A Dream Likely Deferred

Oscar Pistorius and his "Cheetah Flex Foot" blades.

Oscar Pistorius will not be allowed by IAAF officials to compete in the Beijing Olympics.

Tensions between the South African sprinter and IAAF has been rising all last season. For months, the double-amputee has been waiting on test results on whether his prosthetic legs provide additional benefit to him. But no more.

We’re told the official word was expected Thursday and was changed on Saturday to give Pistorius and his managers time to respond. The dream isn't over, yet.

It is very likely that Pistorius will challenge the decision to a higher authority.
