England, Jun24: Dwain Chambers kept alive his hopes of making the London Olympics by winning the 100 meters in the British trials in Alexander Stadium on Saturday.




Chambers has struggled since the British Olympic Association was forced to lift its ban on doping offenders, but ran his fastest time yet -- 10.25 seconds—in winning his sixth national title.

The top two finishers automatically qualify for London, but unlike second-placed Adam Gemili and third-placed James Dasaolu, Chambers has yet to post the British qualifying time of 10.18. The former world indoor and European champion has until July 1.

Meanwhile, world 400 hurdles champ Dai Greene won his final to make his first Olympic team, overcoming poor early season form undermined by illness and recovery from knee surgery in December.
