Chambers ran world’s second best 60m time
  • February 1st, 2009

The recent ‘Birmingham Games’ in Birmingham, England held last Saturday saw Dwain Chambers winning the 60m race.

He ran 6.54 seconds in the finals, but it was his 6.52 seconds timing posted in the semis that was the second quickest in the world this year.

The fastest 60m timing for the year goes to American sprinter Mike Rodgers, who clocked 6.51 seconds at the recent Milrose Games.

The Birmingham Games for which the 30 year old Chambers participated is a a low-key event, where the very same weekend, the much more prolific competition, the Aviva International was also being held in Glasgow, Scotland.

Aviva International is part of the EuroMeetings group of events, and the event rules says athletes with drug history, such as Chambers are not allowed to participate.

For your info, the 60m event at the Aviva International was won by Craig Pickering in a time of 6.57 seconds, and he’s UK number #1 sprinter.
