Caitriona Cuddihy Wins Appeal

Catriona Cuddihy has won her appeal against her de-selection from the Ireland women's 4 x 400m relay team forLondon 2012.
Cuddihy, aged 25, was initially named in a six-strong squad for the Games ahead of 19-year-old Joanna Mills, whose season's best time was faster than Cuddihy's, leading to Mills successfully appealing the decision.
However, Cuddihy's original selection was based on a number of different criteria, including experience at major championships, and her appeal was upheld by an Athletics Ireland Appeal Panel in Dublin.
Mills could still take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and with her coach Ian Neely will release a statement in response to the ruling later.
