Chambers short of Olympic standard
Dwain Chambers insisted he was happy with his performance in Ostrava, despite failing to make the Olympic qualifying time.
The Briton ace has been given an Olympic reprieve after the British Olympic Association's by-law was overturned and he can now compete this summer in London, providing of course he reaches the standard.
Chambers was competing in his first major meeting for six years and was able to post his season's best time of 10.28 seconds - a massive improvement on his 10.52 recorded recently in Puerto Rico.
Although he remains shy of the 10.18 qualification time for the Olympics, Chambers was happy to be out there competing with the likes of Usain Bolt.
"More than anything I'm pleased with the way I felt during the run. I felt really good to 80 metres and just need to work on that part now, the last 20 metres of the race. The only way that happens is with more competition at this level," Chambers said.
"I'm really pleased with what I've done this evening and it's good to be racing against the big guy."
Bolt won the event in a surprisingly sluggish time of 10.04 seconds, with Kim Collins of St Kitts and St Nevis second in 10.19 and American Darvis Patton third in 10.22.
