Mangar Chuot, an Australian man of South Sudanese heritage, has had his Olympic dreams shattered by the Court of Arbitration for Sport

Perth based Mangar Makur Chuot had been nominated for the South-Sudanese team after winning his 200-metre trial in the nation's capital, Juba.

 

The case for his dismissal from the South-Sudanese Olympic team centred on the inclusion of a female sprinter who appeared in the advertisement of an official Olympics sponsor.
