Athletics: Chambers concedes big prize to Gatlin
Monday 22 September 2003
Dwain Chambers was forced to settle for second place in the 100 metres at the Moscow Challenge on Saturday night - and missed out on the £305,000 winners' prize.
That went to the world indoor champion, Justin Gatlin, who came home in 10.05sec with Chambers, the European champion, 0.13sec behind him. The world record holder, Tim Montgomery, was third in 10.19.
The meeting was arranged by the team backing Moscow's 2012 Olympic bid, and several other big-name athletes made an appearance.
The world record holder, Hicham El Guerrouj, won the 1500m in a relatively slow 3min 36.44sec. The Moroccan just held off Paul Korir, of Kenya, who finished in 3:36.48.
The cold conditions did not help any of the athletes, especially in the triple jump where the world record holder, Christian Olsson, was the only athlete to jump further than 17 metres.
Maria Mutola, of Mozambique, maintained her unbeaten record in 2003 with yet another win in the 800m. Mutola, the winner of this year's Golden League jackpot of $1m (£625,000) after winning all six meetings, won in 1:58.82, almost a second quicker than her winning time at the recent World Championships.
