British squad includes Chambers

Controversial sprinter Dwain Chambers has been included in Great Britain\'s squad for next month\'s World Indoor Championships.

Chambers, who was banned from athletics for two years after testing positive for the performance-enhancing drug THG, will the 60 metres in Spain.

UK athletics opposed the selection of Chambers for the three-day event in Valencia, because of his doping past.

Chambers won the 60 metres trial race at Sheffield on Sunday, which under the UK athletics selection procedures should have guaranteed him an automatic place.

However, Chambers was only selected after his solicitor Nick Collins threatened High Court action.

Selectors made it clear that they were unhappy to select Chambers.
