ATHLETICS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS: CHAMBERS OF HORRORS; Bogeyman Collins Strikes Again as Dwain's Golden Dream Is Shattered


COMMONWEALTH champ Kim Collins was crowned king of the sprinters as Britain's Darren Campbell snatched an unexpected 100 metres bronze at the World Championships in Paris last night.

But there was huge disappointment for gold medal favourite Dwain Chambers who finished fourth after clocking the same time as Campbell and silver medallist Darrel Brown.

Collins, the St Kitts & Nevis sprinter who rained on Chambers' Commonwealth Games parade last year, triumphed in 10.07secs.

Trinidad's 18-year-old Brown, Campbell - in a timely season's best - and European champion Chambers were amazingly all given the same time of 10.08 with only the photo-finish able to separate them.

A delighted Campbell savoured his shock bronze but immediately set his sights on next year's Olympics in Athens.

He said: "I kept really quiet, kept my head down and worked hard and it's nice when it all comes together and you win medals.

"I got a great reaction (at the start). I think I was the first to go. I knew I had to get a great reaction to get me in the mix and then my strength would tell.

"The speed is coming but it's not about this year for me. It's about next year. I just want to get through this season with no injuries and I'm just focused on the Olympic Games."

A dejected Chambers vaulted over the barriers in the interview area without making any comment about his disappointment.

But Campbell added: "Hopefully now I will get the respect I deserve as people seem to forget about me.
