Dwain Chambers set for Gothenburg
Tuesday 19 February 2013
Dwain Chambers has been included in Great Britain's team for the European Indoor Championships despite failing to impress on his return from a back problem.
Chambers was unable to compete in the trials in Sheffield before managing fifth on his come-back to the 60 metres at the week-end's British Athletics Grand Prix.
The 34-year-old, who won silver at the meeting in Paris two years ago, admitted afterwards he did not want to go to next month's championships in Gothenburg if he was not fully fit.
But he has been given the green light to join head coach Peter Eriksson's team, which will be captained by Jenny Meadows. She will defend her 800m crown after going under the qualifying mark on her return from injury, but double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah is an expected absentee.
