Chambers to lose earnings from drug yearsOnce the biggest sportsman of Britain, Dwain Chambers is now running for nothing when he will make a return to competition after serving a two-year ban for using anabolic steroids.

Chambers was retrospectively disqualified from races in 2002 and 2003 and was asked by the International Association of Athletics Federations to return the $350,000 he won in that period.

Chambers admitted that he took drugs for 18 months before he tested positive in 2003.

Calvin and Alvin Harrison serve twin drug bans togetherAlvin Harrison recently created a unique but unwanted piece of history when he was suspended for a period of four years by the United States Anti-Doping Agency after admitting taking a cocktail of banned performance enhancing substances.

Alvin became the second half of the first set of twins to be banned for drugs. His brother, Calvin, was suspended for two years in August for a second doping violation involving the stimulant modafinil.

Alvin Harrison won 4x400m relay Olympic golds at the Atlanta and Sydney Olympic and is the third member of the US relay squad from Sydney to have either failed tests or been banned for doping, the others being his brother Calvin and Jerome Young.

Olympic style drug testing backed by Mayweather and MosleyFloyd Mayweather Jr and the welterweight champion Shane Mosley will undergo Olympic-style drug testing for their 1 May fight in Las Vegas that they hope will establish a new standard for boxing.

Representatives of the two fighters joined Travis Tygart of the US Anti-Doping Agency on a conference call for discussing the program that is more extensive than the testing that presently falls under the jurisdiction of state athletic commissions.

Mayweather and Mosley will be subjected to an unlimited number of unannounced blood and urine tests for all drugs currently banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, including human growth hormone and designer steroids such as THG.

Drugs cheat Chambers challenge Olympic drugs banDwain Chambers recently achieved the Beijing qualifying time for the 100 meters at a small event in Germany and will now be challenging the ban that prevented him from competing in the Olympic Games.

Under the rules of the British Olympic Association, Chambers, 30, cannot represent Britain after he failed for the designer anabolic steroid Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) in 2003.

It is believed that even if Chambers has his way, the world of athletics may not be an easy hunting ground for the British athlete now as in the past.

Most expensive legal battle in British Olympic history gets awayFormer drugs cheat Dwain Chambers is all set to challenge the British Olympic Association (BOA) lifetime ban that prevents him from competing in the Games.

The most expensive legal battle in British Olympic history will see the 30-year-old Londoner took advantage of perfect conditions at the EnBW Weltklasse in Biberach to end a frustrating period.

From Guardian.co.uk:

Under the rules of the BOA, Chambers is banned from representing Britain in the Olympics because of the drugs test he failed in 2003 for the designer anabolic steroid Tetrahydrogestrinone (THG), but the athlete claims this is unfair and wants the ban lifted.

Time will be tight for Chambers and his legal team. The Olympic trials are due to be held on 11 July and the team must be finalised nine days later. Collins told Observer Sport last night that papers will be served on the BOA this week.

Chambers will be represented in the High Court by Jonathan Crystal, a specialist sports lawyer, whose previous clients include Brian Lara, Frankie Dettori and Graeme Souness.

‘All the papers are with the barrister already,’ said Collins. ‘He will be going through them early in the week, with the intention of serving them this week.’

Collins said he expects the case to be heard in the week leading up to the Olympic trials in Birmingham. ‘We think we have a strong action, but that will, obviously, be for the judge to decide,’ he said.

Chambers said that many people in the sport want him to disappear quietly but sprinting is what he was born to do.

Trevor Graham guilty of lying to agentsThe controversial US-based coach, Trevor Graham, was recently found on one of three charges of lying to federal investigators about his association with a steroids dealer. Graham could face a retrial after the jury was unable to reach a verdict on the other two counts.

Graham, who guided the careers of the sprinters Marion Jones and Tim Montgomery, had been charged over false claims about his relationship with Angel Heredia who admitted supplying performance enhancing drugs.

William Keane, the court-appointed attorney of Graham, said he would probably file a motion for an acquittal on the one charge that was found proved.
