Judge Delays Decision on Chambers Olympic Ban Appeal

The judge hearing British 100-meter sprint champion Dwain Chambers' appeal of a lifetime Olympic ban has delayed his decision until Thursday.

Chambers served a two-year doping ban between 2003 and 2005 and appealed to London's High Court for an injunction against the British Olympic Association's ban for drug cheats.

The 30-year-old Chambers earned an Olympic qualifying time Saturday when he won the 100 meters in 10 seconds flat at the British Olympic trials.

The one-day delay leaves selection of Britain's team up in the air and leaves even less time for either Chambers or the British Olympic Association to appeal the judge's verdict. Sunday is the deadline to submit the squad to the International Olympic Committee.
