Chambers beats Lemaitre!
June 20, 2010Posted by on
32-year old Briton, Dwain Chambers, ran a superb 100m, stopping the clock at 9.99s at the European Team Championships in Bergen, Norway. Chambers, banned for two-years after testing positive for performance-enhancing substances in 2003 edged out European Junior record holder Christophe Lemaitre (10.02s), who in turn, shaved off 0.01s off his previous best. Chambers is in fine form this year after bagging the 60m dash gold at the 2010 World Indoor Championships in Doha.
The 20-year old Lemaitre is the real deal. From 10.04s in 2009, he lowered his European record to 10.03s a month ago. Now, if he can only get a good start, a sub-10 clocking is surely in the offing. I guess when you’re 1.89m (6’2) tall, those long limbs could get in the way. (but hey, Asafa Powell’s taller at 6’3 and he has a superb start).
