Dwain Chambers: “Eliminate The Noise”
By Ashley Cain
Dwain Chambers was once the fastest man on the planet - dominating 100m sprint and track events - he became the countries main hope for an Olympic gold medal in 2004 and other championship titles across his career. However, in 2004, Dwain tested positive for using performance enhancing drugs. This event changed his life forever. This news forced a ban from track events for two years, and permanently from the Olympics. I’ve been heavily involved in athletics myself growing up and have always looked up to Dwain as a role model. I knew I needed to hear more about his story and better understand how he thinks. He definitely has a winners mindset, so much in fact that it led to his biggest downfall. In this episode, Dwain opens up to me about his career, where his mindset came from and how he beat depression and finally made peace with his mistakes.
