From all accounts, he genuinely gave Rugby League a proper go, despite having approximately 0% chance of nailing down the technical aspects of the game in a month, and combined with how hard he's tried to have his ban overturned, it gives the impression that this is a guy who actually cares about sport.

    Either way, I sincerely doubt he'll run under 10 again, so it doesn't really matter.
    You don't think he can run 1/100 of a second quicker than he did at the weekend?
    Or something.

    100 metre times are made up of minute differences. His PB before the ban was only 9.97, he's 30 years old now and he's spent considerable amounts of time in the last two years training for other sports with much more to consider than running as fast as you can in a straight line.

    Yes, I'm sure they'd sabotage their own chances of a medal just to spite Chambers. No. Really.

    Missings a test makes you a drugs cheat, IMO
