    JOHANNESBURG, Jan 29 – Double amputee Oscar Pistorius has given up on competing at this year's Beijing Olympics but is appealing a ruling banning him from able-bodied competition.

    “We have appealed and we are busy setting things up for the testing,” Pistorius told Reuters from Milan on Tuesday. “But it's a massive commitment and there simply won't be time to get it all done before Beijing, let alone in time for me to run in qualifiers.”
