Chambers at crossroads
Dwain Chambers
Chambers may have to choose between gridiron and athletics
Suspended sprinter Dwain Chambers has returned to Britain to ponder the next move in his disrupted sporting career.

The European 100m champion went to the USA in July to play American football after getting a two-year athletics ban for testing positive for THG.

He joined Californian team Chabot Junior College in a bid to reach the NFL within two years.

But Briton Chambers was forced to head home when his visa expired while he was applying for a student extension.

Chambers has not given up on his NFL dream and neither has he ruled out a return to the track when his suspension runs out in November, 2005.

But he is now set to discuss a plan of action with his management company, which may involve him choosing between American football and athletics.

Chambers' agent, Mark Brodie said the 26-year-old was "in high spirits" after his spell in America.

"He loved it," said Brodie.

"It was not just a whim. He loved watching American football since he was a kid.

"He is in peak condition for both sports and wants to keep his options open."
