It's morning in Australia - Today Nick D'Arcy will receive his verdict from the Court of Arbitration for Sport!

On April 18th, Nick D'arcy was charged with grievous assault which left former swimmer Simon Cowley severely injured with several broken bones to the face, eye socket, jaw lost several teeth in the alleged incident as well. Soon thereafter D'Arcy was removed from the Australian Olympic team which also received the vocal support from the IOC. D'Arcy later filed an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport to be reinstated. Today his verdict will be rendered.

If he is reinstated, I am curious as to what the reaction from the IOC will be?

From ABC down under: "...Swimmer Nick D'arcy will find out this afternoon whether his appeal to be reinstated to the Australian Olympic Swimming team has been successful. ..." [Link]

UPDATE: "... The Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) published its decision in the case on its website at 2pm (AEST) and the Seven reports D'Arcy bid to be reinstated has failed. ..." [Link]
