Chambers to learn Olympic fate

OLYMPICS: Controversial sprinter Dwain Chambers will discover on 12 March whether he is likely to be able to overturn his ban and compete for Britain at London 2012. That is the date that has been set for the Court of Arbitration for Sport to rule on the validity of the British Olympic Association’s lifetime ban on athletes who have ever committed a serious doping offence. If the BOA’s rule is found to be illegal, Chambers will be free to run for Team GB, as would cyclist David Millar, although he has indicated he is unlikely to appeal.
