Ex-doping offender Millar selected for Britain
Former doping offender David Millar selected for Britain's Olympic cycling team
By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) David Millar has been selected for the British Olympic cycling team, joining sprinter Dwain Chambers and shot putter Carl Myerscough as former doping offenders who have had life Olympic bans overturned to compete in their home games.

The 35-year-old Millar was one of five British men named for the 155-mile road race at the London Games. Mark Cavendish, Chris Foome, Ian Stannard and Bradley Wiggins were the others.

Like Chambers and Myerscough, who were named in the athletics team on Tuesday, Millar served an international suspension for a doping offense but had his lifetime ban by the British Olympic Association overturned at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in April.

Millar will be competing in his first Olympics.
