image for Dwain Chambers To Compete With Disabled Athletes
Disabled athletes in the 400m Hopping

Dwain Chambers, the able-bodied drug-guzzling sprinter, has caused controversy in the athletics world, by expressing his intention to race against disabled athletes at an event in Paris in the Spring.

In a mirror-image of the situation surrounding Oskar Pistorius - the fastest man on no legs - Chambers, fresh from his drug-taking controversy, has now stepped into the limelight once more, angering the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).

The IAAF has said that it would award a lifetime ban on Chambers, if he wasn't already serving one. Chambers' solicitor, Alfred Bent, said the athlete would appeal against any decision to ban him, however appropriate the ban might be.

Pistorius, the South African wonder runner, who 'runs' with the aid of ski-like blades, said:

"I am not allowed to run with able-bodied athletes because my skis give me an unfair advantage. Chambers, however, wants to be allowed to compete against disabled athletes and on drugs. There's no justice."
