Dwain Chambers selected for Team GB

Sprinter Dwain Chambers has been included in Team Great Britain's athletics squad for the Olympic Games in London.
The 34-year-old, who won the 100-metre dash at the trials, can compete after the British Olympic Association policy of lifetime bans for drug cheats was overturned.
Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah, Phillips Idowu, Dai Greene and Christine Ohuruogu are among Great Britain gold medal hopes.
Only one woman, Lynsey Sharp, is picked for the 800 metres with 2009 world bronze medallist Jenny Meadows missing out.
Meadows, who said she would appeal if not selected, suffered a setback when she pulled out before her European Championships race in Helsinki on Saturday after aggravating an Achilles injury.
