Dwain Chambers Back In London Olympics – Cliff Notes

Dwain Chambers 1 - dopingDwain Chambers, born on 5 April 1978, has made his return at the London Olympics. A British track sprinter and considered to be one of the fastest European sprinters in the history of athletics, Dwain holds the European record for the 60 meters and 4×100 meters relay events with 6.42 seconds and 37.73 seconds, respectively.

In 1997, Chambers made a junior world record of 10.06 s in the 100 m and made his first Olympic appearance at the Sydney 2000 Games. He broke the 10-second barrier twice at the Edmonton World Championships and won silver at the 2008 World Indoor Championships, gold at the 2009 European Indoors, and became world champion at the 2010 World Indoor Championships.

The athlete decided to relocate to California to work with veteran coach Remi Korchemny and nutritionist Victor Conte and recorded a 200 m personal best of 20.27 s in Athens on 10 June 2002 during the 2002 Commonwealth Games. Chambers also won the 100 m at the Commonwealth Games trials in style and was subsequently made team captain for the 2002 European Cup event. The captaincy brought the best out of Dwain and he went on to equal Linford Christie’s European Cup record of 10.04 s in the 100 m. After being injured in Manchester, the British athlete claimed a gold medal in the 100 m at the 2002 European Championships in Munich with a championship record of 9.96 s and recorded a time of 9.94 s at the Weltklasse Zürich meeting, again beating world record holder Greene. Dwain went on to receive the 2002 European Athlete of the Year Trophy for his achievements on the track.

Chambers’ personal best of 9.97 s set at the 1999 Seville World Championships places him as the third fastest European in the 100 m, behind Portugal’s Francis Obikwelu (9.86 s) and British record-holder Linford Christie (9.87 s).

 Dwain Chambers back in Team GB for London 2012 Olympics

When the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) was investigating the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative (BALCO), a sample for an out-of-competition drugs test that Chambers had provided tested positive for a type of anabolic steroid called THG, or tetrahydrogestrinone. An independent UK Athletics tribunal banned him for two years, backdated to begin on 7 November 2003. Dwain was banned for life from the Olympics and stripped of the medals he had won since mid-2002; the athlete was also asked to pay back his earnings from the period of his athletics career by the IAAF that was affected by drug abuse.

In 2008, Chambers confessed to using epitestosterone cream, EPO, HGH, insulin lispro, modafinil, and liothyronine according to a letter by his supplier Conte to British anti-doping chief John Scott.

The two-year athletics ban and a lifetime Olympic ban in 2003 after he tested positive for Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) was overturned in 2012. The Court of Arbitration for Sport overturned his lifetime Olympic ban as the ban was deemed non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code.

During the London 2012 Olympic Games, Dwain Chambers won his heat in 10.02, with a legal 2.0 m/s following wind in the first round but finished fourth and did not make the final after running 10.05 in the semi-final.

After a positive drugs test in June 2011, Wyberton’s Team GB sprinter Bernice Wilson has failed in her appeal against a four-year suspension.

The 27-year-old broke into the British team last year and competed at the European Indoor Championships and tested positive for two anabolic steroids.

Parkinson added: “We have successfully argued for a four-year ban which demonstrates that UK Anti-Doping always seeks robust sanctions against athletes who look to cheat the system and betray those around them.”

The prospect of a two-year ban loomed large for Asian Games and Commonwealth Games medalist Sini Jose, Jauna Murmu, and Tiana Mary Thomas.

This was after their ‘B’ samples too tested positive for anabolic steroids.

 The disciplinary panel, headed by Justice Dinesh Dayal, will be finalizing the dates for the hearing soon.

Manju Wanniarachchi has claimed he was prevented by the authorities from challenging the decision.

Sri Lanka’s boxing star whose gold medal from the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games was stripped off on a doping conviction alleged that the Sri Lanka government told him that an appeal would hinder the country’s bid to host the Games.

“Neither the government, nor the ministry exerted pressure on him. The medical report clearly shows that that substance was in his body. I have both the police and medical reports,” said Sports minister, Mahindananda Aluthgamage.

  Indian race walker caught doping

Indian race walker caught dopingRani Yadav, the race walker from India, has tested positive for the banned steroid nandrolone. She has thus became the third person at the Commonwealth Games to be caught doping.

The athlete has been provisionally suspended from the event, according to the Commonwealth Games Federation.

From Timesofindia.indiatimes.com:

Yadav could be banned for two years if found guilty. Over the previous two days, two Nigerian runners were found to be positive for the banned stimulant Methylhexaneamine, with Osayomi Oludamola later stripped of her gold medal in the women’s 100-meter race. Hurdler Samuel Okon, who did not win a medal, also tested positive.

Commonwealth Games Federation President Mike Fennell said more than 1,300 doping samples had been collected so far at the games.

“Everyone would concede that to have three doping cases of those 1,300 tests is not a bad record,” Fennell said. “And two of those have been concluded for substances that are considered by many to be not in the serious area of doping activity, which is stimulants. This new case has not been heard and I would not want to make any comments on that.”

The World Anti-Doping Agency recently loosened the classification of Methylhexaneamine for next year to the “specified stimulant” list, which covers drugs that are more susceptible to inadvertent use and can carry reduced penalties. Sanctions for use of the drug can be reduced if athletes can prove they did not intend to enhance performance. Penalties can range from a warning to a two-year ban.

WADA said Methylhexaneamine was sold as a medicine until the early 1970s and has now reappeared in some nutritional supplements and cooking oils.

Nandrolone is a steroid used by sportsmen to enhance the level of performance and it seems like the Commonwealth Games seem to have improved their anti-doping efforts after being criticized by WADA following the games in Melbourne four years ago.
