Dwain Chambers


Recommended Posts

He's been left out of the 4x100m relay team for the World Championships even after breaking the British 60m record and winning gold in the European Indoor Championships.

Does anyone else think that this is a disgrace?

The man has served his time and paid his debt, so he should be allowed to get on with his career. His ban from the Olympics and Grand Prix competitions is also a disgrace. Live and let live.

"It's simply a lack of opportunity to practise in competition, Dwain is not allowed to compete in most of the international meets," said Van Commenee.

"We did consider the option of including him in the relay squad for Berlin, but opportunities in a competitive environment are too limited for him to prepare properly within the team.

"I want to be absolutely clear that this decision is purely about performance and the appropriate preparation for a major championship. It is not an indication of any bad feeling among British sprinters nor is it a response to the publication of any book."

Would you still be saying that if you were part of the last successful British relay team that were stripped of their gold medals following Chambers' positive drug test?

I think not.
