Dwain Chambers set to comeback out of retirement aged 40 to compete at British Indoor Championships

Dwain Chambers, who retired in 2017, is set to make a surprise comeback to professional athletics at the British Indoor Championships.

The 40-year old who was once one of Britian’s most successful track athletes before his doping ban for steroids in 2004 until 2006, is looking to resurrect his international career. He claims he is in as good shape as any point in his career and stands a fighting chance of succeeding.

Dwain returned to athletics after attempting to break into American football during his two-year doping ban. He was able to win the indoor 60m title in 2010, after fighting attempts from the British Olympic Association to impose a lifetime ban.

Chambers will line up in the 60m British Indoor Championship on Saturday, where the top two will automatically be selected for next month's European Indoors in Glasgow, provided they meet the qualifying time of 6.60secs.
