British sprinter Dwain Chambers warmed up for next week's world indoor trials in Sheffield with a fine 60m victory at the Birmingham Games in 6.58 seconds.

Chambers, the world indoor 60m silver medallist, came home ahead of Mark Lewis-Francis and Harry Aikines-Aryeetey at the National Indoor Arena.

The 31-year-old went one-hundredth of a second quicker in his semi, moving him to second place in the world rankings.

The World Indoor Championships take place in March in Doha.

Chambers, the reigning European indoor gold medallist, was competing for the first time since placing sixth over 100m at last summer's World Championships in Berlin.

The Brit is behind American Mark Jelks, who ran 6.56 in Dusseldorf on Wednesday, in the world rankings.
