In 2003 Mr Chambers was banned from competing after testing positive for the steroid TGH. This verdict brought him a standard world-wide ban for two years. This would have devastating for any top athletics at that time of his life and career but Dwain Chambers started to fight back in every way. He kept up with his training and fought, in court, before the Beijng Olymics in 2008.
He stated that it is different this time with another Olympics coming up. He has not to undertake the fight himself and can concentrate on his training. Furthermore he doesn’t want to be in court himself again. Chambers said: “I think about London (meaning the Olympics) and no matter what happens I must be prepared. If the door opens then at least I am prepared properly and can compete to the best of my ability" “I have been concentrating this winter on training for the 100m if the possibility to compete happens. If not, I’ll go to the European Championships in Helsinki this summer.”
If the BOA, British Olympic Authority, loses their case in court, Dwain Chambers and David Millar, the cyclist, will be able to compete in the Olympics 2012. The Mail online reported early in 2012, "The British Olympic Association bylaw which enforces a lifetime Olympic ban on drugs cheats will face legal scrutiny by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on March 12. The BOA have challenged the decision by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) that the lifetime ban is 'non-compliant' with their code".
Opinion: Whether they are found guilty of having taking drugs or not it must be time to move on. For Chambers it was 2003 when he was accused and surely it should be laid to rest now. Furthermore, quite a number of athletes were accused of the same thing but later on it was proven that the test was not accurate. The attitude of Mr Chambers, after the devastating result, is to be admired.
