A ruling that would allow British drug offenders Dwain Chambers and David Millar to compete in the London Olympics is the right one, and sends a “strong and powerful statement” regarding the World Anti-Doping Agency’s authority, the chief executive of the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) said.

Sprinter Chambers and cyclist Miller will be cleared to compete in this year’s Games when the Court of Arbitration (CAS) overrules a British Olympic life ban on doping offenders, a source with knowledge of the ruling said on Sunday.

CAS was to announce later on Monday that the British Olympic Association (BOA) lifetime ban does not comply with WADA’s global code, which provides for a two-year suspension for first-time offenders.
