THE anti-doping chief of UK Sport, John Scott, feels disgraced sprinter Dwain Chambers owes it to athletics to come clean on all he knows about drugs cheats.

Chambers (pictured) has now returned to competitive action following his two-year suspension after testing positive for designer steroid tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) in 2003. He remains banned from the British Olympic team. While Chambers has publicly stated the reasons he turned to drugs and expressed a willingness to help the anti-doping cause, UK Sport maintain the sprinter has not yet given them chapter and verse on the controversy.

Scott said: "Contrition is good, but we need more than that. We certainly don't know who else was in the know, whether there are people still in the system he worked with.

"We don't know enough about the regime he pursued. This is the sort of information which is most valuable if you are trying to drive drugs out of sport."
