Dwain Chambers fails to overturn lifetime Olympic ban
  • July 20th, 2008

English sprinter Dwain Chambers has failed to overturn a lifetime Olympic ban set on him by the British Olympic Association (BOA), preventing him from competing in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing

He lost a legal bid to overturn a lifetime ban in court on Friday. London High Court decided not to lift BOA Olympics lifetime ban on any British athlete that has failed a dope test

Despite winning the British Olympic trials and Britain fastest sprinter in the 100m event, he was overlooked by BOA on that merit and thus turned to the courts to allow him for a place in Beijing

Chambers has since served a two-year suspension for doping in 2004, after testing positive for the steroid THG in 2003 but is defiant. 30 years old now, Chambers eyes Olympic London in 2012

He stated he has served his time and deserved a second chance. Chambers will continue to compete in other international athletics competitions
