100m world record-holder Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson, will open their track & field season in the customary fashion, running the 400m at the Queen’s/Grace Jackson Meet at the Stadium East

Games 200 metres champion, Sherone Simpson, signalled her return from injury with an impressive personal best in the 400 metres at yesterday’s seventh Queens/Grace Jackson meet at the Stadium East in Kingston. Running in lane three, the petite Simpson ran a stellar final 150 metres to catch Anastasia Leroy, who had gone past her on the back-stretch with 80 metres to go before pulling away to win by five metres in 52.21seconds. Simpson’s previous best was 52.65secs done last February in Kingston

In the men’s equivalent, world 200 metres silver medallist, Usain Bolt, who ran in the same heat as world 100-metres record-holder Asafa Powell, ran a relaxed 46.94secs to break the meet record of 47.0secs established by Garth Robinson in 2003. Annsert Whyte (47.29) and 2003 world 100 metres gold medallist, Kim Collins of St Kitts (47.83) returned the second and third fastest times over the distance. Meanwhile Powell, who finished fifth in the heat with 48.76secs – the 12th fastest time of the day, confessed his strategy did not go according to plan
