A sad day in British sport when we don't have anyone better than a cheat to select. I refuse to support him and hope he doesn't get past the first round. Yes I know he has served his ban and all that. But he will always be a cheat in my eyes and it's disgraceful that clean athletes have missed out in favour of him.
That was equally the view of the selectors. They implied that they acted under duress (though I think they bent rather too easily under that duress). They're looking to change the rules so that they can override the selection of trial winners if they've been banned for doping offences.
However, in a strongly worded statement, selectors made it clear they had chosen Chambers under duress.
"The committee was unanimous in its desire not to select Dwain," read the statement.
"Taking him to the World Indoors deprives young, upwardly mobile, committed athletes of this key development opportunity.
"Our World Class Performance Programme is focused on achievement at Olympic and World level.
"On this basis, it is extremely frustrating to leave young athletes at home; eligible for Beijing, in possession of the qualifying standard and committed to ongoing participation in a drug-free sport.
"In contrast, we have to take an individual whose sudden return, especially when considered against his previous actions and comments, suggests that he may be using the whole process for his own ends.
"Unfortunately, the committee felt that the selection criteria pertaining to the winner of the trials, coupled with the manner of Dwain's performance, left them no room to take any other decision.
"We wish all the selected athletes well at the event but will certainly explore ways in which future selections can be made to match the true 'spirit' of our sport."
