TWO CLEARED IN DRUG CASES.

Byline: Associated Press

An Australian sprinter and an Italian high jumper were cleared Thursday to compete in the Olympics despite recent positive drug tests.

The council of the International Amateur Athletic Federation decided to submit the cases of Dean Capobianco of Australia and Antonella Bevilacqua of Italy to arbitration.

The hearings will be held sometime after the Summer Games, meaning the two athletes can compete.

``In our rules we cannot suspend the two athletes before the judgment of the arbitration panel,'' IAAF spokesman Giorgio Reineri said.
