Dwain Chambers has confirmed that he has linked up on “an educational basis” with Victor Conte, the American founder of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, who supplied him with tetrahydrogestrinone (THG), the banned drug. The use of THG led to a two-year ban from the sport for Chambers, who has since returned to the track and won gold in the 60 metres at the European Indoor Championships in Turin on Sunday.
“I am a forgiving man,” Chambers said. “I have forgiven myself, I have forgiven him. I do not blame him for anything that occurred during that period. I ruined my career, nobody else did that. Again, my relationship with him is on an educational basis. The information that they require from me about when to test, I ask Victor for that and I give it to the relevant bodies.”
