Chambers, IAAF comes to agreement

10 June 2006

The International Association of Athletics Federations struck a deal on Friday for British sprinter Dwain Chambers to return to action following his two-year drugs ban.

World athletics' governing body revealed that they have accepted an offer from the European 100metres champion to reimburse them with the appearance fees and purse money he won during the period he was using drugs.

"Dwain Chambers wishes to place on record that he will do whatever he can in his future career to assist the IAAF in the battle against doping in Athletics," the IAAF said on their website.

Subject to clearance from UK Athletics, Chambers will now be eligible to compete at the Norwich Union British Grand Prix in Gateshead on Sunday.

His return would see him face world record-holder Asafa Powell and former world champion Kim Collins at the IAAF Super Grand Prix meeting.
