Video Dwain Chambers winning the men's 60m dash in Doha


Great Britain’s Dwain Chambers rocketed to the gold medal in 6.48seconds to win the men’s 60m dash at the World Indoor Championships.

Chambers’ time is the fastest in the world this season and he got home ahead of American Mike Rogers and Daniel Bailey of Antigua who finished third.

But it was all about one man, Chambers, who got off to a rocket of a start and powered away from the world-class field – beating Rogers, who clocked 6.53, with Usain Bolt’s training partner Bailey, the world championships outdoor fourth place finisher taking third in 6.57.

Jamaican Veronica Campbell-Brown won the women’s event on her debut with a personal best time of 7.00seconds – upsetting a very strong field, including the world-leader and favourite LaVerne Jones-Ferrette of the US Virgin Islands and American Carmelita Jeter.

    Chambers is a cut above all competition at the 60metres event and he deserves to be forgiven, as he has surved his ban. Rio Ferdinand was forgiven why cant Dwain get another chance. I think it is terrible the way Dwain has been treated, give the man a chance. I wish Dwain luck in the future and I think he should be promoted and encouraged in Britain, as he is our best athlete and probably of all time.
