I've just received the breaking news from the BBC that Dwain Chambers has failed to overturn his Olympic ban. I have to say that I totally agree with the court's decision. I know the main argument to allow Chamber's to compete was that he had done his time and he should be shown forgiveness. Well I'm sorry but he was fully aware of the lifetime ban when he cheated. The ban was put in place by the British athletics team itself as a deterrent to drug cheats. If Chambers had been allowed to compete in the Olympics, that deterrent would be rendered useless.
Fair play won today.
