  UK sprinters stripped of silver
Updated 29 April 2004, 17.51
Dwain Chambers in the 4 x 100m relay race
The British 4x100m relay team members have been forced to return their silver medals because of Dwain Chambers' failed drugs test last year.

The team came second in the 2003 World Athletics Championships but lost its medals after Chambers tested positive for the banned drug THG.

He denies taking the drug on purpose but has been banned and stripped of all his race results since the failed test.

And this also affects athletes who took part in team races with him.

The other runners on the team who have been made to give back their medals are Marlon Devonish, Christian Malcolm and Darren Campbell.

In February Chambers was banned from all competitions for two years.

And under British rules Chambers' ban also means he will never be able to compete for Britain in the Olympics again.

He tested positive for the steroid in August 2003 and has been suspended since November.
