Pretoria, South Africa (SportsNetwork.com) - Prosecutors have appealed the conviction and sentence given to South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius. Pistorius was sentenced to five years in prison on Oct. 21 for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Judge Thokozile Masipa had acquitted Pistorius of murder but found him guilty of culpable homicide in September. Prosecutors described the five-year sentence as shockingly light and inappropriate in appeal papers filed by South Africas National Prosecuting Authority Tuesday at the High Court in Pretoria. Under South African law, Pistorius will have to serve at least one-sixth of his sentence -- 10 months -- before he can ask to be considered for parole. Prosecutors have said they believe Pistorius should have been found guilty of murder. He would face a minimum of 15 years in prison if convicted of murder on appeal. Steenkamp was killed by Pistorius on Feb. 14, 2013 in the bathroom of his home. Pistorius maintained the shooting was an accident, believing he was firing into the bathroom at an intruder. The prosecution countered that the double- amputee runner knew Steenkamp was in the bathroom and fired four shots after the two had argued during the evening. Judge Masipa ruled that prosecutors did not prove that he shot Steenkamp intentionally. Steenkamp, who was 29 years old, was a model and reality television star in South Africa. Pistorius, known as the Blade Runner, made history at the London Olympics in 2012 when he became the first double-amputee runner to compete in the Games. He had both legs amputated before he was a year old after being born without fibula bones and runs on prosthetic blades. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) had initially said that his prosthetics were considered technical aids and in violation of an IAAF rule. But the Court of Arbitration for Sport later overturned that decision, making him eligible to compete against able-bodied runners. Pistorius qualified for South Africas Olympic team in 2012 and competed in the 400-meter race, reaching the semifinals, and the 1,600-meter relay. Nike Juvenate Australia .

World footballs most prized club competition has further legal issues with another team, Fenerbahce, also fighting expulsion over a years-old domestic match-fixing case as it prepares to play Arsenal in the playoffs next week. Metalist will challenge UEFAs verdict with an urgent appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and can ask for the sanctions to be frozen while the case is processed. "We regret that such a sanction was applied, and we do not agree with it," Metalist first vice-president Konstantin Pivovarov said in a statement. The Ukrainian club had been scheduled to travel to play Schalke next Wednesday in the first leg of the playoff round, after eliminating PAOK 3-1 on aggregate in the third qualifying round last week. UEFA President Michel Platini led an emergency meeting Wednesday which decided that the Greek club will now go to Germany instead. The return match is on Aug. 27, with the winner advancing to the groups draw in Monaco two days later. Metalist appears to have ended its debut Champions League campaign unbeaten but in disgrace. It finished as runner-up last season to title winner Shakhtar Donetsk, breaking Dynamo Kyivs lock on the second entry allocated to Ukraine in the elite competition. "Metalist has won the right to participate in the 2013-14 Champions League in a fair fight," Pivovarov said. UEFA charged Metalist last week after CAS upheld sports director Yevhen Krasnikovs five-year ban, imposed by the Ukrainian Football Federation. Krasnikov allegedly helped fix a 2008 Ukrainian league match against Karpaty Lviv. UEFAs Champions League rules require clubs not to have been involved in fixing national or international matches since April 2007, when its legal statutes were updated. Fenerbahce officials were convicted in a Turkish criminal trial of helping fix matches during the teams successful rrun to the national league title in 2011.dddddddddddd They deny wrongdoing and have appealed. UEFA banned Fenerbahce in June from two seasons of European club competitions, but the sanction was frozen pending an appeal at CAS. Fenerbahce eliminated Salzburg in the third qualifying round to earn a playoff against Arsenal. The first leg is in Istanbul next Wednesday. CAS is preparing to set a hearing date for Fenerbahces appeal and aims to give a verdict before the draw in Monaco. Metalist, which was bought last December by new owners reportedly connected to Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, also is seeking a legal fixture at Switzerlands highest court. The club has asked the Swiss Federal Tribunal to examine the 250-page CAS ruling which upheld Krasnikovs ban, in a case which saw several former Karpaty players banned from three to five years. Judges can overturn the sports courts ruling if legal process was abused. "I want to assure fans that we will fight for the rights of the club," Pivovarov said. Metalist had hoped UEFA would reach a similar verdict to one it pronounced in June on a third Champions League playoff club whose officials were implicated in corruption. Steaua Bucharest president Gigi Becali had a criminal conviction upheld by a Romanian appeal court in June. Among the charges, he was accused of attempting to pay bribes in 2008 to another club to play well against one of Steauas rivals for the league title. However, UEFAs disciplinary panel deferred Steauas one-year competition ban for a five-year probationary period after "taking into account certain mitigating circumstances." Cleared to enter the Champions League, the 1986 European Cup winner will host Legia Warsaw in the first leg next Wednesday. PAOKs return to the tournament affects the Europa League playoffs, which it had dropped into after losing to Metalist. PAOK wont be replaced in the playoffs and its scheduled opponent, Maccabi Tel-Aviv, will qualify directly for the Europa League group stage, UEFA said.
