Chambers misses out on Olympics

Controversial sprinter Dwain Chambers powered to victory in the 100m at the British Olympic trials, but subsequently failed to overturn his Olympic liftetime ban at the High Court

The 30-year-old won the trials in 10.00 seconds, but victory proved worthless.

He finished ahead of second-placed Simeon Williamson, 22, who secured his Olympic place with a time of 10.03.

Craig Pickering and Tyrone Edgar also made the Beijing men's sprint party.
