Sports law titans contest Chambers doping case

Three heavyweights of the sporting bar, all from Blackstone Chambers, went head-to-head last week at the inquiry into doping allegations against Dwain Chambers. After four hours of case presentation by David Pannick QC (left) for the prosecuting body UK Athletics, and less than an hour from Michael Beloff QC for the sprinter, the chairman of the three-man disciplinary tribunal Charles Flint QC decided that he would present his case in writing this week.
