Chambers aims for European mark

Sprinter Dwain Chambers will use the Birmingham Games on Saturday to achieve the British qualifying standard for the European Indoor Championships in March.

Chambers will be targeting 6.65 seconds for the 60m, but cannot compete at the Aviva International match in Glasgow.

He is banned from competitions organised by the EuroMeets Consortium after his drug test failure.

"I realise that my races will be limited due to this ban, so I aim to compete locally," said Chambers.

Instead, Chambers will be racing at the National Indoor Arena to improve on his performances.

"It will help build up my relationship with the press and the general public who come and watch me compete," said Chambers, who ran 6.52 seconds to take silver in last year's World Indoor Championships.

"I'm in good shape - now I aim to run as fast or quicker."

The European Indoor Championships take place in Turin from 6-8 March.
