Rieti Grand Prix: Asafa Powell sets impressive 100m time
  • September 6th, 2008

The Rieti Grand Prix yesterday saw former 100m world record holder, Jamaican Asafa Powell setting impressive times in the meet. The Rieti meet is part of the IAAF World Athletics Tour 2008

In the heats he cruised to a time of 9.77 (+0.9 m/s) seconds while the finals he ‘dip the tape’ at 9.82 (+1.4 m/s) seconds winning the blue ribbon event. Last year he also won the event and produced a world record time of 9.74 seconds at this same meet

Always impressive at low key events, I can’t help but wonder if Asafa Powell is a ‘choker’ and will he ever win at the ‘big stage’. If Asafa Powell had run any of the above two timings at the Beijing Olympics Games 2008, it would earned him a silver medal

100m Finals

  1. Asafa Powell JAM 9.82
  2. Michael Frater JAM 9.98
  3. Ronald Pognon FRA 10.10
  4. Harry Aikines-Aryeetey GBR 10.10
  5. Travis Padgett USA 10.10
  6. Ainsley Waugh JAM 10.14
  7. Craig Pickering GBR 10.17
  8. Rodney Martin USA 10.19
