Athletics: IPC will not take action over Oscar Pistorius outburst
Tuesday 04 September 2012
Oscar Pistorius will not face censure for his comments on regulations
governing prosthetic running blades, the International Paralympic
Committee said today.
The South African yesterday apologised for raising his concerns over the length of some rivals' blades immediately after being beaten to T44 200 metres gold by Brazil's Alan Fonteles Oliveira on Sunday night.
IPC communications director Craig Spence said "There will be no disciplinary action against Oscar for his comments."
A date is still to be set for a meeting between Pistorius and the IPC, with arrangements being taken place through official channels.
"We're waiting for the national Paralympic committee of South Africa to go through the relevant channels and contact the IPC and then the meeting will be set up," Spence added.
