LONDON - Dwain Chambers who won the 100 metre race at last Saturday's British Olympic trials in 10.0 seconds says he visualized competing sprinters as members of the British Olympic Association Anti-Doping Commission chasing him as motivation for running a winning time.
Chambers maintains he is innocent of using performance enhancing drugs as alleged and demands to be reinstated in time for the Bejiing Olympics.
The British sprinter served a two-year ban for testing positive for the steroid THG in 2003 and says he has learned from his past mistakes.
"I played it over in my mind thousands of times before the starter's pistol went off."
"I saw them chasing me, trying to keep up, hoping to run along-side of me while I was in full stride, carrying their clipboards and urine sample bottles, asking me all sorts of personal questions you know . . . stuff."
"I easily outdistanced them; struggling in their lab coats and all . . . I didn't answer their questions either."
"I knew I was the clear winner over those BOA technicians."
"Their lab coats started to bind at the thigh above the knee, right out of the blocks, restricting a full range of motion."
"After 20 metres I pulled away clean."
