Asafa runs 9.84 WL at Jamaica Invitational

Former World Record holder Asafa Powell signaled his return following up his win in Guadeloupe with a World Leading of 9.84sec at the Jamaica International Invitational meet at the National Stadium in Kingston Jamaica.

Powell, who has been consistent on a comeback trail of sorts, held off challenges from start to finish with his customary lightening moves out the blocks. Ryan Bailey (USA) 9.93 who was booed during his introduction had to settle for the second place, while a staple on Jamaicas 4×100 Nesta Carter took 3rd place in 9.98seconds.
