May be now the BOA will get tougher & make the ban longer for drug cheats. 2 years is nothing & this is why Chamers was able to take this case to the High Court, with any luck the BOA will make it 4+ years or even a Life ban!
If I was in the team for the Olympics and he was allowed to rejoin. I would drop out. That is what I think our athletes should do if he is allowed back in. I think he can still appeal as well can't he? He's also stopping someone else being selected.
to cheat in order to win at sport, and he got caught. He was banned from competing, and he should stay banned - it would have been a disgrace had he been allowed to represent us in Beijing, and a slap in the face for honest athletes.
Totally agree look at what drug taking has done to the cycling world. If they used drugs at anytime it should be a ban and for life, when an athlete wins he becomes a role model for any youngster wanting to emulate his success and what sort of example is drug taking.
The worst part of this is that Chambers admitted he took "banned substances" - no denials for him, then. He went on to almost boast that he had taken hormone products (also banned) for 18 months before he was caught. What does he expect, a medal? Obviously he does - from the Olympics.
As for him saying "the ban was an unfair restraint of trade." Ha! So cheating is fair is it?
If Chambers is achieving speeds which qualify him to be entered for the Olympics, how do we know that he hasn't done this by nefarious means?
