Chambers withdrew from England’s sprint relay squad for the Commonwealth Games yesterday to concentrate on next month’s European Championships in Zurich. 



The 36-year-old Chambers, who has not competed at a Commonwealth Games since 2002, was part of the men’s 4x100m relay squad but he will now focus on the individual 100 metres at the European Championships which start in Zurich on August. 12. 



England Athletics has not named a replacement for Chambers, who won a fifth successive 100 metres title at the British Championships last month. 



The Commonwealth Games start in Glasgow today. The men’s 4x100 final is on August 2.
