Chambers in British team

31.07.2009 World

European indoor champion Dwain Chambers insists he always felt „relaxed“ about being picked for next month‘s World Championships even though he underperformed in the trials two weeks ago.

Chambers - who will contest the 100 metres and 200m in Berlin - suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Simeon Williamson in the 100m in Birmingham.

The 31-year-old Londoner then said he was feeling unwell and withdrew from the 200m suffering from fatigue. Chambers took a week‘s rest after his disappointing display in Birmingham, which he blamed on tiredness.

„I‘m not making any excuses but I was suffering from a lack of energy. I‘m okay now, I‘ve had 10 days of hard training and I am preparing for Berlin,“ he said, as David Martin writes.
