UK Athletics coach Charles van Commenee has revealed former drugs cheat Dwain Chambers is “likely” to make Team GB’s Olympic squad for the 100m sprint.
Chambers in 2003 tested positive for a designer drug but remains eligible for selection after the British Olympics Association’s policy of lifetime bans for drug users was overturned, making his inclusion a genuine possibility.
“It’s a likely outcome,” said Van Commenee. “He won the trials. And the fourth-best athlete in Britain can’t be better than the winner of the trials, so it’s common sense.”
