Ricardo Chambers, after public outcry, has been called to the Jamaican team for the XV World Athletics Championships in Beijing, China from August 22 – 30.

Chambers, who crossed the line third at Trials and got his result taken away, was originally left off the team.

"Just receive one of the best news of my life. I'm now included on the team for worlds," said Chambers wrote on his facebook page "Words can't explain how happy i'm feeling right now. God is good," ge said.

Dennis Gordon, Jamaica’s team media officer, said the “the request was made by the technical team” and that “the JAAA secretariat is handling the request.”

Chambers is the third faster Jamaican this year at 44.93, done at the NACAC Senior Championships last weekend.

He will now join the 4x400m pool of Javon Francis, Rusheen McDonald, Peter Matthews, Dane Hyatt, Jonia McDonald and Edino Steele.
