Chambers to sign sworn statement over drug use

British sprinter Dwain Chambers is set to sign a sworn statement for UK Sport revealing his doping offenses.
The 30-year-old Chambers, who served a two-year ban, released an autobiography last month, "Race Against Me: My Story," detailing his years of performance-enhancing drug use.
He met Monday with UK Sport's director of drug-free sport, Andy Parkinson.
"The aim of the meeting was to build further on the conversation we had last year with Dwain and the content of his recent book," UK Sport said. "We had a constructive meeting which concluded with Dwain agreeing to provide a sworn statement confirming all the information he has provided, both in his book and at our private conversations.
"Once this statement is finalized, we would consider Dwain to have fully cooperated with us. At that point, we will discuss with Dwain how best he can assist us in our work, most notably in helping ensure current and future generations don't make the same mistakes."
Chambers tested positive for THG in 2003, becoming the first athlete connected to BALCO founder Victor Conte to test positive for the previously undetectable steroid.
Chambers won the 60-meter title earlier this month at the European indoors in Turin, Italy, his first major individual trophy since returning from his ban.
