Aaron Cook's lawyers are to send a "letter before action" to the British Olympic Association outlining his legal case why he should be in the British Olympic taekwondo team. Londoner Lutalo Muhammad was controversially picked in the under-80 kg category instead of Cook who is the world no. 1.
Cook could take his case to the High Court or the Court of Arbitration for Sport if the BOA or the World Taekwondo Federation do not take action. He also today offered to fight Muhammad in a one-off bout to decide who should go to the Olympics.
