Asafa Powell breaks the 100m world record!

He ran 9.74 in Rieti. He chokes in big competitions, but has now improved his previously set top mark by 0.03. Beat that Tyson.
Asafa really needs to perform in a big contest for a change though, like the Olympics next year.

Powell smashes 100m world record
Jamaican Asafa Powell broke the world 100m record by clocking 9.74 secs at the IAAF Grand Prix in Rieti.

Powell, the bronze medallist at the recent World Championships, shaved 0.03 of the record he previously set in Athens two years ago.

He ran 9.78 in the final run, another fantastic time.

Re: Asafa Powell breaks the 100m world record!

Pity he can't show his best at the most important times.
But that being said, way to go to come back strong after Osaka's disappointment.

some signature

For once I agree with you, it's no coincidence that 3 of the last 6 100m record holders have been CAUGHT on the stuff.

Really, don't even look at me...

Re: Asafa Powell breaks the 100m world record!

I'm not so sure about Asafa being a drug taker... isn't his father a priest or something like that? It just seems really weird...

Thats just like saying my fathers a priest so I must be straight - he could actually be gay!

Note: My fathers not a priest, nor is he homosexual - hes just a disgrace
