Aaron Cook has revealed that he will not take his case for selection to Team GB to the High Court after he was denied a place in the taekwondo squad.
Cook is the world number one in the 80kg class but has been overlooked in favour of Lutali Muhammad for the London Olympics and has since been trying to battle for selection.
The 21-year-old decided to quit the GB academy and instead trained at his home and quickly established himself as one of the very best in the world.
The British Olympic Association decided that there was not sufficient new evidence for GB Tawkwondo to overturn their decision and Cook had hinted he would take his case to the Court of Arbitration.
However, he confirmed on Friday that this would not not be the case and he is set to miss the Olympics.
"After careful consideration over the last few weeks, and despite my representatives advising me that I still had a good chance of successfully overturning the BOA's ratification of Great Britain Taekwondo's decision not to select me for London 2012, I have decided not to take my case against the BOA to the High Court."
