Australian selectors name Olympic team

Australian Olympic selectors have left open the possibility of Cathy Freeman running in the 200 metres event at the Games.

A team of 83 athletes has been named by Athletics Australia for the Olympics.

Selectors have chosen to keep a spot in the women's 200 metres vacant, so Cathy Freeman can run if she wants to.

Freeman will run in the 400 metres, but is also keen for a 200 metres berth.

Nova Peris-Kneebone also wants that spot, but the decision will now be made by team management closer to the Games.
