London - The Court of Arbitration for Sport has ordered South Africa to change one selection in eventing at the London Olympics.

The court says it upheld an appeal by rider Alexander Peternell that he should have been selected instead of the only other candidate, Paul Hart, who was chosen by South Africa's equestrian federation and Olympic committee.

Peternell is ranked 164th in the world and Hart is No 442.

The eventing competition, comprising dressage, cross-country and jumping rounds, begins on Saturday and ends on Tuesday.
