At the Sunday's Aviva UK Indoor Trials, Chambers exhibited that he is the fastest man in Britain by claiming first position. He also ensures to defend 60 metres world indoor crown held in Istanbul.
Chambers seem satisfied with his victory, as he is mainly focusing through the winter on the training of 100m and not 60m.
He said "I still have to prepare. If the door opens, then at least I'll be prepared. If it doesn't happen, then I'll still have to go out there and salvage the rest of my season as best as I can."
