London 2012: Gareth Warburton wins Olympic appeal


Welsh 800m runner Gareth Warburton has been added to Team GB's Olympics squad after winning an appeal against his omission, but 10 others were rejected.

Warburton was left out of the squad after failing to achieve the second 'A' qualifying time he needed at the European Championships in Helsinki.

He had been just 0.2 seconds away from achieving the time he needed.

He told Claire Summers on BBC Wales Today about his delight at winning his appeal.
