Although he was an accomplished sprinter in his own right, Ernest Chambers’ successes at the Olympic Games came in the tandem sprint events. Paired with Jack Sibbit they reached the final in 1928 in Amsterdam but were beaten by the pair from the host country in slightly controversial circumstances. Some thought the Dutch duo blocked the Britons in the final stages.
Chambers partnered his brother Stanley at the 1932 Games and, after losing to the French pair in round one, battled their way to the final only to lose their rematch with the French. He reunited with Sibbit for an unsuccessful campaign at the Berlin Olympics before retiring. In later life he ran a cycle shop in the London borough of Mitcham.
