Lisa Norden to get gold along with Nicola Spirig?

Team Sweden appeals to CAS for joint gold medal.

The Swedish Olympic Team has filed an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) with the hopes of awarding Lisa Norden a joint gold medal with declared winner Nicola Spirig of Switzerland.

The CAS is expected to issue its decision on Saturday.
