The former European 100 metres champion Dwain Chambers may not race again, according to his agent. The 28-year-old had a mixed campaign in 2006 following his return from a two-year drug ban after testing positive for tetrahydrogestrinone (THG).

Although he ran 10.07sec on his return to action at Gateshead - the fastest time of the season by a British sprinter - Chambers could not sustain his form and finished seventh in the final of the European Championships in Gothenburg.

His agent, Cubie Seegobin, said: "Because we have so much money to pay back, if he can find another way to make a living he will. Dwain might only have a year or two of competition left and will have to pay most of his prize-money back. This is my logic, not anything he's told me. He's training and will be ready for the outdoor season, based on what I'm told, but there are other things he's putting his attention into."
