BERGEN, Norway (AP) -- Britain's Dwain Chambers has won the 100 meters in a time of 9.99 seconds on the first day of the European team athletics championships.
Chambers was never seriously challenged Saturday on his way to posting the fastest time in the 100 by a European this year.
Chambers tested positive for the steroid THG in August 2003 and served a two-year ban. He is banned for life from the British Olympic team, though he won the right to compete for British teams in other championships.
Britain is competing over two days against teams from France, Germany, Belarus, Finland, Greece, Italy, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain and the Ukraine.
Germany won the competition's inaugural event last year.
