WADA stays out of Chambers dispute; says it's up to UK athletics to rule on sprinter

WADA stays out of Chambers dispute; says it's up to UK athletics to rule on sprinter

World Anti-Doping Agency president John Fahey wants British sporting authorities to decide the future of sprinter Dwain Chambers.
"I watch it with interest. By all means, let them come to a (decision) that they think is in the interest of their community, their athletes," Fahey said. "It is up to UK athletics to do what they think is right."
Chambers, banned for two years from 2003-05 after testing positive for the steroid THG, was picked to run in next week's world indoor championships in Valencia, Spain, after meeting qualifying standards.
Chambers is reportedly considering a court challenge to Britain's Olympic ban on dope cheats, a move that could allow him to go to the Beijing Games in August.
