3 Wire Sports:

"Let’s say you dropped into Sunday’s final day of the 2014 world indoor track and field championships. Further, you were a stranger to the sport, maybe kinda-sorta checking it out, a local from here in Sopot or Gdansk. The program started at 2:50 in the afternoon. It wrapped up a little past 7 in the evening. That’s just over four hours. In those four-plus hours you saw — deep breath now — 14 events, two semifinals and 12 finals, as well as 17 medal ceremonies. Essentially, you went to the circus. All that was missing was lions, tigers and bears. This has to change."

His former coach Stuart McMillan said, "In a world where the default setting for a doping positive is denial, Dwain did not only own up to his mistake, but he went out of his way to atone for it. It is a real shame that now, over a decade later, he is still unable to make the living in his sport that he deserves to – especially when I see so many others who are doing so – many of whom have never admitted guilt, and many of whom have never lifted a finger in reparation."

Chambers finished 6th in the 60.
